As discussed in Monday's newsletter, the average price for water in the Portland Metro area haS increased from 61% to 327% over the past 5 years! WATER RATES ARE THE FASTEST GROWING UTILITY COST IN THE PORTLAND METRO AREA! As you can see from the chart above, all rates have risen, some more than others, and the rates vary widely from city to city.
As irrigation systems age and the landscape evolves as it matures, changes to the system also can reduce water use and cost. That is why we have developed our Water Conservation Plans. Many system or landscape modifications can lead to significant water savings and have great ROI.
