Water - An Economic Stimulus

Communities utilizing water as an economic stimulus?! Is this a new trend? If so, is it a wise one? Or does it further devalue this resource that is so vital?

I recently read about a community offering job producing businesses deeply discounted water rates in order to get them to re-locate to their community. Is this a first? Will other communities follow? What impacts will this have on a community’s water system?

I understand the need to draw businesses to communities so that jobs are available, but at what cost?

Share your thoughts, concerns, insights.
