Re: How much water does your family use in a month?

Thanks again for the replies.

The bill is only for around $85.

Irrigation system has been off. We've had enough rain. It's programmed to only run on Mondays. I checked that. We're on water restrictions, only allowed to do one-day watering. According to my address, that day is Monday. But, I have the switch in the OFF position so it won't run at all.

Lucky you. We are changed for water and a 125% surcharge for sewage. My water/sewage bill is around $1400/year. No lawn watering.

We pay that much for 4,000 gallons. Anyway, 6,000 average here for two adults and two small kids, and we never water the yard or wash the cars.

This is familiar. My water bill, just for water is like, $4.25. But the whole bill is closer to $37 by the time sewer and storm water fees and daily availability fees and such are tacked on.

I wouldn't have a lawn that couldn't live off rain only.

Pouring water on the lawn while changing to LED Bulbs to be green and conserve energy.

I've read that water, not food is going to be the big item for conflict in the near future. The world's supply of usable water is running out.

Depends where you live ... Live in an arid location or depends on glacial runoff, yup you'll be looking for new place to live in the not to distant future. Many locations in Florida have the highest annual rain fall in the US, water isn't an issue around here

Sorry, but only one location in the US can have the highest annual rainfall, and it's in Hawaii.

Weedkillers are also illegal. No point in watering weeds.
