"We don't charge enough for our urban water really, because a typical water utility being publicly owned, simply doesn't not charge the customer for the value of the raw water that they're treating and then providing to the customer."
He recently co-authored an (unpublished) report on water utilities not listing the value of the water rights as part of the assets on which they can earn a return. Some utilities like Boulder and Denver own senior water rights worth in the millions of dollars.
"Most urban utilities do have a portfolio of water rights. These water rights typically have very high value, and the value of these water rights greatly exceeds the value of the physical plants and the pipelines and stuff owned by most utilities and yet these water rights are generally not recognized in setting prices for water for urban users. If an urban water utility is privately owned and falls under the jurisdiction of the PUC, presumably a privately owned for profit water utility is allowed to earn a certain percentage return on the value of their assets and yet these utilities do not list the value of the water rights as part of the assets on which they can earn a return."
Howe says the value of the water rights is not passed along in terms of cost to the consumer. Rather, water bills reflect the cost of service.
"The prices instead reflect the cost of gathering water, treating it and distributing it but not the value of the raw water itself."
Howe says as urban areas in Colorado continue to grow, there is little debate on where the water they need will come from.
