presented by Stephen P. Gasteyer, Ph.D.
This brown bag Webinar is brought to you by the NGWA Economics of Groundwater Interest Group.
Attend this half-hour brown bag Webinar to learn about disparity in water rates in Michigan and beyond, and whether particular groups may pay disproportionately higher rates.
While U.S. residents, in aggregate, pay very little for water and sewer — around one percent of household income — water rates have been consistently rising over the last decade. Further, rates vary significantly by place.
Multivariate regression analysis of census data to compare the self-reported cost of water and sewer across counties in Michigan reveals not only tremendous disparity in reported expenditure, but also a higher reported cost of water and sewer associated most strongly with the percentage of minority racial status by place.
Preliminary analysis on actual water rates supports these results and is explained as the impacts of postindustrial divestment and subsequent uneven depopulation of certain urban areas.
