Value of Water

At less than a penny a gallon, tap water remains one of the lowest cost utility bills – a true bargain considering the resources and expertise it takes to treat and deliver safe and reliable water to your tap 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. For most households, you can cook, clean, and do laundry for about $3 a day. When compared to other products we use every day, tap water is clearly one of the best deals around!
