I also noticed that my water usage for the current billing period isn't quite as voracious as I thought, as it covers almost 2 months (57 days to be exact).
So here's my stats:
- 37 units for the billing period
- 27,676 gallons total for the billing period
- 177,290 gallons annualized
- 486 gallons/day
- Approximately 1/3 of 1 cent per gallon (makes bottled water look pretty astronomical!)
At least I'm well shy of the 750,000 - 1M gallons/year that some of the elected officials noted in the recent OC Register article (click to view) are using. As I've adjusted my sprinklers per the new State of California guidelines, it will be interesting to see the impact on my next billing cycle (dead lawn aside, ha ha!). Let's hope the elected officials adjust their sprinklers as well!
