5:17 pm
canceled for the drought and the drought surcharge canceled and emergency drought regulations canceled. >> what they will see for the average customer is drop in the bill to $4.40. >> is it anything goes? >> not likely to return to where they were before, if they upgraded the appliances or fixtures, they will receive savings every year. >> and the answer is yes because they are baked in the conservation cake. >> what we have seen in the past 30 years that we have been looking at this is that customers take 7 or 8 years to change their behaviors. >> 25 million-dollars the utility loss due to buying water will not hike because the utilities saved up for a rainy day. >> we have been bringing in supplement supplies and putting in money to the stabilization fund that is the emergency savings account for the drought.
