AN OUTRAGEOUS ACTION
TJI1C city council evidently intends lo make the region
surroundiii? Medford a lmiTon desert. To this end
the council has passed a resolution increasing the mini
mum for use of water outside the city limits, 'J.fiO per
mouth and a charge of 'Jf cents per 1000 gallons for all
water used in excess ol oUlX) gallons.
The present rate is $1.00 per month minimum and 1 12
cents per 1000 gallons. Where ")0,000 or more gallons are
used, a rate of b cents per 1000 gallons is made.
The new rates are an outrage. They are higher than
in any place in the land. Kven in southern California,
where there is a constant shortage of water, which has to
he brought hundreds of miles at an enormous investment.
no such excessive prices govern.
Twenty-five cents per 1000 gallons is prohibitive. The
new rates mean simply the abandonment of lawns and
shrubbery and a cessation of efforts all too rare in Ore
gon of beautifying the country. There are evidently not
enough vacant suburban homes about -Medford the coun
eilmen want them all vacant.
No emergency exists just ifying (his action. The water
svsteni is making a good profit on the investment a profit
that , -justifies a reduction in rates rather than an increase.
There, is no shortage of water. Over a million gallons a
day is going to waste most of the time two million
The only shortage that exists in the water supply is

of the city is sometimes shy due to lack of pressure in
the small mains. Notation of irrigation hours will tempo
rarily remedy this- pending the construction of a cross-
town main from the reservoir to teed the southern portion
of the city which should be tho next improvement contemplated.
There are less than a hundred city water-users outside
the city limits few of them use much water. What they
use does not seriously affect the city's supply. Nearly ail
of these suburban residents do business, buy their 'sup
plies, spend their money in Medford, rent Medford build
ings and offices, pay water rent also in Medford and
there is no reason why they should be penalized for
attempting to improve and develop the countrv.
AVhen the Medford water
great argument used whereby the community was induced
to bond itself so heavily, was that the abundance of water
thereby provided would enable cheap water and create the
city beautiful. Lawns, shrubbery, shade trees would be
possible everywhere, and the surplus water be used in
developing the country. Based upon the reasonable (but
not cheap) water rates put into etfect, residences have
been constructed and beautification of the property under
taken.. Now, when things are fairly started, the council
arbitrarily puts on a rate that virtually confiscates the
improvements and sends the property back to its original
Many of those affected-are poor people who have their
all invested in their little homes. They must let their gar
dens die and their property go backward.
The council gave a fine exhibit of its pennvwise and
dollar foolish wisdom when it discharged its efficient' fire
department to save a few dollars and lost at the first fire
several times as much money by hose destroyed through
inefficiency as it would have saved hv its itjnsjiinniiv in .
