Dear Editor:

Reference Pagosa SUN 11/21/13, PAWSD to change rate structure.

In 2011, we all had an increase and now a 62 percent increase for water usage.

Profit is mentioned for PAWSD? Let’s rethink this. PAWSD board must not be gardeners of veggies and must not support homegrown veggies in our community. When one grows food, not only do the gardens need water, but gardening creates dirty clothes, which need increased water.

For folks that don’t get dirty and don’t grow food, the water charge increase probably doesn’t matter. PAWSD board needs to rethink and support local grown food.
