As expected Denver Water voted to raise rates yesterday, according to the Denver Post [September 15, 2005, "Denver Water raises rates"]. From the article, "Denver Water's residential customers will see their bills increase by an average of 8 percent next year following a decision Wednesday by the utility's board of commissioners. The board raised consumption and service charges and adopted a new rate structure that will boost the bills of high-volume water users. After the new rates go into effect in January, most residential customers will see their bills rise an average of $20 to $30 a year. Utility officials say the new rates will generate an additional $12 million to cover a projected budget shortfall caused by dwindling water sales and rising operating costs."

Here's the coverage from the Rocky Mountain News [September 15, 2005, "Denver Water plans rate hike"].

Colorado's basins are in pretty good shape, according to the Rocky Mountain News [September 15, 2005, "Winter key to water recovery"]. From the article, "The state's water supply is 98 percent of average, with the South Platte Basin, which supplies Denver, the lowest in the state at 86 percent of average, said Gillespie."
