Quote for the Day

The bottom line today is that water continues to be an under appreciated and under-valued asset. But water prices will eventually start to rise more quickly – as a result of on-going population and demand growth, drought and increasing scarcity. More and more major urban areas are beginning to bump up against the challenges of true scarcity. And as water prices increase, we will gradually pay more attention and modify our behavior – toward improved conservation and more efficient use. As prices inexorably rise, we will eventually be forced to confront and solve these problems, and truly recognize water’s fundamental value. But we aren’t there yet.
