Subject: Documentation for Politifact on statements in my oped on affordability

...I'm including the link to highly respected consumer advocate, Paul Robbins recent study on Austin's high water costs:  http://environmentaldirectory.info/clientuploads/Hard_to_Swallow_1.doc

It is the source of my comments on the 100% increase in last ten years, the fact that we have the hightest water cost of the top 10 cities in Texas, and that our water costs are proposed to increase more by 2016 (I undersatnd these were your questions per my staff.)
