Per Capita Water Use

Annual Per Capita Water Use and Conservation Goal
* Water Shortage Allocations in effect

Per capita water use includes all categories (agriculture, industrial, municipal, etc.) except recycled water. The current average household of four uses about 447 gallons per day. Data are for fiscal years. The 2020 Goal is the result of California Senate Bill X7-7 of 2009 which requires a statewide reduction of 20% urban water use by 2020 (and interim 2015 goal).
