Municipal water consumption patterns of Halifax, Nova Scotia

“It has been shown in this study that an increase in price will create a reduction in the cubic meters of water consumed per customer in a significant way. However it also shows that consumers are very price inelastic when it comes to the consumption of water and it will take a large change in price for consumers to alter their consumption patterns. It has also been shown in this study that as employment increases water consumption increases albeit in an insignificant manner.”
