The price of water is a touchy subject in a state like Michigan, where folks’ water bills account only for the access and treatment of water–not for the water itself as a commodity.  As population grows and climate change makes water availability more variable, there is a growing need to stretch water resources further.

But the proliferation of limits on water use will not solve the problem because regulations do nothing to address the main driver of the nation’s wanton consumption of water: its price.  –Eduardo Price, NY Times 10/14/2014
