I fully support water restrictions during a drought. But to raise water rates like the mayor of Raleigh wants to do is a criminal offense.
It is price gouging during a natural disaster. The drought is a natural disaster. People would not put up with price gouging during a hurricane.
So we shouldn't put up with it now.
The poeple who don't follow the rules shoulg be punished. Don't punish the people who follow the rules.

The city of Raleigh water company is a monopoly taking advantage of its customers. This needs to stop.
