Look what’s buried in the Cost of Service Study...

Why are EID’s 34,561 Residential Water customers paying $1294 (or more) per acre foot of Water, while 1,700 Irrigation customers pay as little as $68 per acre foot?

comparative prices
* This is the usage of EID’s average Rural residential customer…the .372 acre foot average annual usage that EID compares in its colored charts in “The Waterfront”.
** This is the average Recycled residential customer based on 15,000cf annually

***IMS without residence

Pure and simple, EID's water rates violate Proposition 218!
