MIDLAND - If you waste water in Midland, you'll be hit in the wallet.

The Midland City Council approved raising water rates on Tuesday for those who use too much.

It's a huge hike as the price is four times higher.

If you use between 10,000 and 25,000 gallons of water a month, you will pay almost $16 for every 1,000 gallons you use.

Those using more than 25,000 gallons will pay $18 dollars.

The rate hike is designed to push people to conserve our dwindling water supply.

The rate hikes go into effect on April first.
