Many of the expenses incurred in supplying domestic water are directly related to the quantity of water consumed by each land-owner. This is especially true of the costs for arsenic removal. The media that adsorbs the arsenic must be replaced at the end of its useful life, which in our case was originally estimated to be every 19.4 months, but is lasting much longer due to a decision to chlorinate the incoming water, mix treated water with raw well water, and adopte a tiered rate structure. Media replacement is estimated to cost $5,400 for the media and approximately $6,000 for removal and re-installation. Similarly, power and depreciation costs are related to the volume of water delivered.
