Colorado Springs' City Council has approved new water rates, according to the Colorado Springs Gazette. In keeping with the trends in Colorado residents will pay more while being encouraged to use less water.

From the article, "People who use a lot of water will pay more beginning May 1 under a rate hike approved unanimously Tuesday by the Colorado Springs City Council. The new rate system will replace mandatory watering restrictions this summer. New rates will apply to residents who use more than 2,499 cubic feet of water per month, the highest of Colorado Springs Utilities' three water rate blocks. The new fee of 4.2 cents for every cubic foot of water over 2,499 is a 27 percent increase over rates currently in effect. That means the typical high-use customer would spend $1,879 a year, a $277 increase."
