In this episode, Charles Upton interviews Tom Ash. Tom worked for over 30 years in the public water agency world and was the first to implement a water budget tiered rate structure, adjusting water prices to individual needs and usage. Using the power of data and trusting in their consumers intellect to understand the new system, he created an incentive structure towards conserving water allowing their managed area to reduce water consumption while the population was increasing, all without spending money on an official water conservation program. This episode contains many lessons that can be generalized from water use to all sorts of regenerative initiatives, so listen closely and enjoy!
Charles Upton is an expert in water management and long time Earth Regenerators member. He works with his company osoeco.co to reverse land degradation.
