TUCSON -- Why is Tucson Water pushing to raise rates again so soon after their $142,000,000 bond approvals in May 2005? These bonds included money to expand the 'clearwater' facility and increase use of (bad) CAP water.
Tucson needs to do more to curb water use and urban sprawl. Relying on CAP water is a mistake due to the major over-allocation of the CO River.
It always seems Tucson Water is not working for current customers or public-interest, but instead big developers' money interests and the next million people they want to move in to Metro Tucson.
If rates are to be raised, it should be on commercial and big users only, not average homeowners.
