There has been a lot talk about water conservation lately so I decided to chart our elderly two-person household use over the past two years vs. our water budget. Having owned my house for 25 years I can, with a degree of confidence, multiply my usage/savings by 25.
Our usage was 59,000 gallons in 2021-22, 69,000 in 2020-21 and our water budget was 118,000.00 for 2021-22.
My household water use is not a scientific study, but I'm betting many Dougco senior homeowners have similar results. Common sense makes more sense than pumping water 200 miles from the San Luis valley, and Douglas County homeowners are literally sitting on millions of gallons of untapped water in their faucets.
