Just received a note from Urban Utilities stating our water useage over the past 91 days. We consumed 18kL which translates to an average of 198 litres per day. This amount when compared to the same period last year is considerably less (645). We didn’t live here then.

I had been worrying that we were using water needlessly but this note also provides information on the average for the area we live in as well as the Brisbane average and again our consumption is considerably less  (although, I’m sure we can improve). The local average is shown to be about 420 and the Brisbane average is just over 380.

Very pleased with our reduction here.

According to the Urban Utilities website, 40% of water use is in the bathroom; 10% use is in the kitchen; and 15-20% use is in the laundry.
