Descriptions of the five major types of water rate schedules are presented. A national sample of rate schedules is analyzed to measure the effect of existing water pricing policies on the dollar value to homeowners of a unit of conserved water. This value is found to be significantly lower than the average price of water, which analysts often incorrectly use to evaluate water conservation investments.
