This paper describes the evaluative process that the City of Clearwater went through to determine that metering reclaimed water, and setting higher reclaimed water rates to provide a greater level of self sufficiency, reversed a number of dynamics that were going to have negative long-term consequences, while allowing a reduction in the annual rate increases required for the City's water and sewer rates. It also demonstrates the interactive financial modeling process utilized by the City's consultants, Burton & Associates, to quantify the financial consequences of the reclaimed water rate decision alternatives available to the City.
