I find it ludicrous that the city of Anaheim has sent out a glossy little brochure telling the citizens how they might save a few teaspoons of water. And today I read that the new public utilities general manager is "big" on conservation. Edward K. Aghjayan wants Anaheim to be a role model for water conservation. How can the city reconcile this noble goal with continued annexation of more land to the east and the unrestricted housing developments in every part of our city, thereby increasing water usage?

The city's water conservation effort took a dive in October with usage down only 6.8% from last year, significantly less than savings in previous months and far from the city's conservation goal of 15%. Edward K. Aghjayan, the city's utilities director, blamed the shortfall on October's unseasonably hot weather. Water usage had been down 20.5% in August compared to the same month in 1990 and 16.7% in September. Anaheim residents and businesses used 1.8 billion gallons of water in October.

Residents would pay less for water and business and industrial users would pay more under a rate restructuring plan that will be considered Tuesday by the City Council. The proposal also calls for the city to increase its water revenue by 1.5%, effective Aug. 1, a move that would raise about $500,000 per year. Residential water users are now subsidizing water rates for commercial and industrial users, according a city report.

"It's hard to collect when that happens," said City Manager James D. Ruth, before the council unanimously agreed Tuesday to absorb the bad debts. The bulk of the debts, about $1.

Concerned that a proposed 1.5% increase in water rates amounts to a tax hike, City Council members Tuesday will reconsider a fee restructuring program. Councilman Bob Zemel said he objects to the rate hike because it was prompted by a right-of-way fee Anaheim is charging its own Public Utility Department. The department is fiscally independent of the city.

A long-term agreement to provide electricity to the Disneyland Resort project at a discount will be considered by the City Council tonight. The city-owned Public Utilities Department has negotiated the agreement with the Walt Disney Co. to provide electric service at a discounted rate at least through 2005. After that, the agreement gives the city the first right of refusal through 2010 to match any offer that Disney receives from another electricity provider. Edward K.
