Another way to insure revenue, in addition to raising rates, would be to mandate more housing, thus more revenue. But then again where would we get the water to supply the new homeowners, from the new storage we have needed since our last drought?

More housing create more heat coz when people move in they will sure use cars, air conditioners more roads those things added more heat as soon as the temperature rise. And before the year end there will be fires around make our fresh water disappear even more.
I would encourage people to minimize instead because the more we minimize the more the environment will love us. And the benefits sure will give us happy and clean environment.
