North Kona "water crisis"

I just got my water bill for the period from mid July to mid September. It's substantially less than half of what it has been in previous billing periods, due to it being illegal for me to use my sprinklers. Less than half? That means that I and most likely many other water customers will be paying less than half as much as usual to the county. Standby for the hue and cry from the DWS as they declare the monetary crisis facing the department. This will result in the DWS "reluctantly" being "forced" to substantially raise water rates to make up for lost revenue. Hardly matters how much water folks use, the salaries of employees and managers must be paid. This exact scenario played out in many California communities when civic minded citizens cut back water usage because of drought conditions. Fast forward to the eventual end of this crisis, perhaps some time next year. Rates will not fall, but water usage...and salaries...will go up.
