Will the cost of our water go down with the implementation of water reuse, or should we expect costs to remain steady?

One of the reasons we are implementing reuse is that it is a more economical solution for Castle Rock. Pumping water from thousands of feet below the surface, or from sources far away, is more expensive than using water we already own and within our community. Projections indicate we may still need to raise rates slowly over time, but at a much smaller pace than if we were to use imported renewable water supplies.
