Why do you guys charge so much?

Why do you guys charge so much?

Our normal billing rates actually fall in the average range. We are not the most expensive, nor the least expensive. We are a small, privately owned company. As a privately owned company, our rates are regulated by the WUTC. Rates, however, are high when excessive use occurs, and this is to discourage excessive use of our resources. Some water companies pass this expense on to all customers, but our rate plan, which is approved and regulated by the WUTC, is to charge the people who actually consume excess water.
