Which Costs the Least… Water, Milk, or Coffee?

This week we have a guest post written by Tampa Bay Water, our regional water supplier.

Even the cheapest cup of coffee can’t compete with the cost of a fresh, clean glass of drinking water. That’s because the wholesale rate for water is $2.56 per 1000 gallons – that is just two-tenths of a cent for a gallon of high-quality drinking water. What a deal!

And here’s some more good news. Tampa Bay Water recently announced that there would be NO rate increase for water for the fourth consecutive year.

While local governments must add to that charge to further disinfect, pump and deliver the water, drinking water remains a great value.  Need further proof? Just check out the graphic below.
