Water Use Calculator
How to use your water bill to set your savings goal and help conserve during this historic drought
SET YOUR WATER SAVINGS GOAL
Indoor household water needs can typically be met using 25-50 gallons per person per day. During the summer months, however, water use can double due to outdoor irrigation. Below we have provided a calculator for you to better understand your water bill and current water use. After calculating your use, set a goal of how you can start or continue to save water. We encourage you to visit our Water Conservation webpage to learn how to save water both indoors and outdoors.
Step 1: Input the Water Usage This Period (cf)
Find the line on your water bill that reads: "Water Usage This Period (cf)". That is your water use in cubic feet. Enter this number into the first box. *Sample bill below = 289
Step 2: Input # of Days in the Billing Cycle
Find the date range listed below "Billing Details - Current Charges" and enter the number of days in the billing period in the second box.
*Sample bill below = 35 days within the date range
Step 3: Input the # of People in your Household
To find out the number of gallons used per person per day in your household, enter the number of people in your household in the third box.
