Although conservation appears to be the least expensive alternative water source, people always forget in their analysis about the lost revenue from reduced sales. As water agencies lose revenue, the cost per unit of water has to rise in order to make up for the loss in sales, as is evidenced by rate increases throughout Southern California. So to make a fair comparison, the cost of the conservation program must include the loss in revenue per acre foot that is saved.
