Community Water Systems 2008 Annual Water Use Reporting Summary


Based on the first three years of reported annual water use data, the Community Water System Program is excited to provide summaries of community water system water demand by groundwater basin for 2006-2008. These summaries include information on:

  • Water deliveries by type (e.g., single family homes, non-residential etc) for each basin
  • Water demand for 2006-2008 for each reporting community water system
  • Gallons per capita per day (GPCD) for 2006-2008 for all reporting systems
  • Effluent generation and reuse by community water systems in each basin
  • Percent of metered systems for each basin
  • Average annual water use 2001-2006 by demand sector (municipal, agricultural and industrial) for each basin.

*Only basins with community water systems are included here.  There are a few small systems within the AMAs that use exempt wells and therefore do not have a service area right. These systems, although in an AMA, fall under the purview of ADWR’s Community Water System Program and are included in the "AMA" summaries.
