Doobie: You ever think about the basics of life?
Well Buddy, not a lot but food and water comes to mind.

Yes, water. Have you ever had your water cut off? It's a real pain even if it's only for a few hours. Take the Denver Water Board.
Quote:
Denver Water proudly serves high-quality water and promotes its efficient use to 1.4 million people in the city of Denver and many surrounding suburbs. Established in 1918, the utility is a public agency funded by water rates and new tap fees, not taxes. It is Colorado's oldest and largest water utility.
How about electricity, Buddy. That seems like a basic necessity.
Exactly. Total aggravation if you lose your electricity for a stretch. It's amazing how reliable it is on the whole though.

Electricity, supplied (mostly) by Xcel Energy is a utility holding company. Both our water and electricity are not paid by any taxes but rather by user fees. Both Denver Water and Xcel Energy are required to be financially strong and reliable, plan and invest for the future. Both do an impressive job all things considered.

Anything else you're thinking of Buddy?
No, that's all for now, Doobie.
