Conserve water and you'll still get screwed

From the Staten Island Advance:

The agency that supplies your water and sends you the bill urges conservation and offers all kinds of tips for using less.

Follow the suggestions and a maddening thing happened: Your water bill goes up.

In May, the New York City Water Board backed the DEP's proposal and hit city residents with a 12.9 percent water increase set to begin July 1.

One of the primary reasons for the size of the increase is a reduction in water usage.

So the message is: The more you save, the more we will have to charge you.
