From 1998 to 2007, Onondaga County added 7,000 new housing units. Housing unit size went up 40 percent.
The county also added 61 miles of road.
From 2001 to 2008, the county laid 147 miles of water-moving pipes.
But in all that time, the population of Onondaga County - which includes Syracuse - has remained totally flat.
Meaning: less water is actually being delivered, but the cash-strapped county is spending more on the infrastructure to deliver it.
