    Not sure how long this link will be good for this story. It talks about how full our reservoirs are compared to the past, and that we will not be having restrictions this year. At least not for Colorado Springs Utilities customers. But we have many water districts in the area, and I know of 5 others that DO have restrictions in place this year. I personally think they should keep them in place forever. Be proactive, not reactive.

    I still believe one reason our city lifted them, was that they were not making enough money by selling water because they were restricting it. They have since raised prices and set up tiered (spelling?) water rates to make money again. Good to see they gave out $10 million in bonuses this last year to utilities employees. Mainly the upper management from what I read.;)

    According to WordWeb you spelled it correctly. :)

    Tiered: having or arranged in tiers.

    I agree. Too many drought years and you end up with "water police" because people just don't learn.
