Compared to other expenses—mobile phones, Internet, cable television, food—water is a pretty good deal.

Most consumers only pay around a half of a penny per gallon for clean water delivered to their tap.

However, aging infrastructure, rising energy costs, climate change and the need for new water projects to meet a growing population all will contribute to the cost of water increasing. As demand for water increases, solutions to complex water issues will need to be crafted.
