Never Looked Into Economics?


Instead, I went ahead and found another half-gallon-sized iteration that was a bit more clean in design, with the same time of day markers and peppy reminders to keep me on track but in a not-so-noticeable font. When the bottle first arrived, I was shocked at its size despite being well aware of what a half-gallon looks like. But quickly, my bottle and I got acquainted and it felt like I had gained a new friend with a lot of personality. In the morning, I fill the bottle up to the brim, take a big swig to make sure I’ve hit my 7:00 am marker and “wake up for the day” as the bottle suggests, and then place it at my desk . Then, at 9:00 am, the bottle encourages me to “cheer up,” which I appreciate. “Thanks, I needed that,” I definitely have said aloud. 11:00 am’s slogan, “come on” with no exclamation point, feels encouraging some days and passive-aggressive on others, depending on my mood. 1:00 pm promises me “one more cup,” when in fact there is far more than one more cup to drink, but I like the encouragement even if it’s a white lie. At 5:00 pm, the bottle tells me, “you almost there,” as if we are texting and, in an effort to be cool and chummy, correct grammar doesn’t matter. Then, at 7:00 pm, another text “yeahh...Perfect day.” Was it a perfect day? I’ll often wonder as I take final sips. Drinking water can be existential. There are days where I’m mindful to consistently drink and hit my markers at the appropriate times throughout the day. There are days where I’m chugging water to keep up, but having the time frame (and slogans) on the bottle’s side has indeed kept me hydrating consistently. “Adequate amounts of water every day will aid in digestion, proper sleep, and all major bodily functions,” Los Angeles-based trainer Danny Saltos says. Now, it’s been several weeks upping my water intake, and I do have to report that, placebo or not, I'm sleeping better, feel sharper and my skin has more bounce to it.

Water Utility Residential Customer Satisfaction Remains Steady as Usage Surges in Pandemic, J.D. Power Finds TROY, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 5, 2021-- A combination of major regional service interruptions, significantly increased water consumption, higher utility bills and a lack of effective communication during the pandemic have resulted in no change year over year in customer satisfaction with residential water utilities, according to the J.D. Power 2021 U.S. Water Utility Residential Customer Satisfaction Study, SM released today. Overall customer satisfaction remains at 737 (on a 1,000-point scale) as usage has increased about 6% nationwide, and this year marks the first time that satisfaction has not improved since the study began in 2016. “Between the massive weather event in Texas and the overall heightened sense of anxiety among consumers who have been spending more time at home and consuming more water, the past year has put local water utilities to the test,” said Andrew Heath, senior director of utilities intelligence at J.D. Power. “Despite recent efforts to improve communications and ramp up digital customer service channels, water utilities still have a long way to go when it comes to delivering valuable, proactive communications to help their customers through challenging situations. For example, the widespread service interruptions in Texas really put a spotlight on just how vulnerable utilities can be to adverse weather events.” Following are key findings of the 2021 study: Customer satisfaction remains static or declines as usage spikes: Overall customer satisfaction with residential water utilities remains the same nationwide in 2021, following five consecutive years of steady improvement. Specific areas showing declines in customer satisfaction are billing and payment and customer service. Residential water usage has increased about 6% year over year. Texas storm reveals cautionary tale: Three-fourths (75%) of residential water utility customers in Texas experienced some type of water service interruption and 44% were subject to a boil advisory following the severe winter storm in February 2021. Accordingly, quality and reliability satisfaction scores throughout Texas fell 20 points during the fourth wave of the study (conducted in March 2021). Overall customer satisfaction scores average 116 points lower among customers who experienced boil advisories. Need to communicate results of annual water quality report: Water utilities are required to test the tap water and publish an annual Consumer Confidence Report to reassure their customers that the water is safe to drink. Only 41% of customers recall seeing or receiving such a report but, among customers who do recall seeing or receiving a report, satisfaction scores increase 83 points, on average. The study measures customer satisfaction with water utilities in eight geographic regions. Highest-ranking utilities and scores, by region, are as follows: Midwest Large: Illinois American Water (759) (for a second consecutive year) Midwest Midsize: City of Minneapolis (759) (for a second consecutive year) Northeast Large: New Jersey American Water (760) Northeast Midsize: Monroe County Water Authority (756) (for a second consecutive year)
