Daily Water Usage and Savings Information
Average Daily Water Use
Be aware of how much water you use. Awareness is the first step in conservation. The average Maryland citizen uses almost 100 gallons of water per person per day on the following activities:
  • Bathing and hygiene
  • Housekeeping
  • Kitchen functions
  • Laundry
  • Outdoor activities
  • Toilet usage

Water Savings

The amount of savings depends on:
  • Current flow rates of fixtures and flush volumes of toilets
  • Current water consumption habits
  • System pressure
  • The amount of water leakage through fittings and toilets
  • Water, sewer and energy costs

Water can be conserved by making improvements in the home or by modifying behavior. See our water-saving tips to help reduce your cost and consumption.
