Water supply

By Peyton Fleming
From Think Progress - Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2012

Coalition response..."Reality-based water pricing" might work well in those situations where there is the option of passing along the higher costs to the ultimate consumer, such as in our cities. Residents have little choice but to pay the higher costs. But agriculture presents a different situation. Farmers cannot pass reality-based water costs along to consumers, who ultimately benefit from water used to grow crops. California farmers are already paying the costs to obtain water to grow a food supply that we all have come to rely upon. Increasing water costs to farmers according to a reality-based formula can only mean farmers going out of business and losing their farms while consumers face the potential of a reduced food supply and increased costs. It doesn't make sense.
