Low Water Bills Blamed for High Consumption

Iran will face widespread water shortage sooner-than-expected if water price is not adjusted, Energy Minister Reza Ardekanian said on Friday.
“While the price of a 0.5-liter bottle of mineral water is 10,000 rials [22 cents], 1 cubic meter of running water is priced at only 5,000 rials [11 cents],” Ardekanian was quoted as saying by ILNA. 
The official added that the unreasonably low prices cause consumers to pay no heed to the precious commodity and consume it imprudently as if it will never deplete.
