A new residential water-use calculator is available for use. This tool helps residents estimate how much water they use in their homes and provides practical tips for conserving the region’s most precious natural resource. The water calculator guides users through a series of questions about their homes and water use indoors and outdoors. Based on house-specific data, the calculator quickly estimates how much water is used by major appliances or fixtures, and it identifies specific areas for improving overall household water-use efficiency. Then, the calculator compares individualized results with average and highly efficient homes in the same zip code, showing how much water could be conserved if homeowners make specific changes or upgrades. The process takes about 10 minutes. Click here to get started.
