Water Withdrawals Per Capita Remain Steady
Since 2012, per capita water withdrawals in the Metro Water District have remained steady around 100 gallons per capita per day (gpcd), with some variation due to climate. Even in drought years, the implementation of drought restrictions has maintained the effective culture of wise water use.
Methodology: This gpcd calculation is the sum of all municipal and industrial demands in the District divided by the population of the District. It accounts for water sales into and out of the District. Note that population is based upon the latest estimated census values (last visited June 18, 2020).
