Seattle per capita water use down 36%


The Seattle region is another example of how determined efforts at water conservation can keep water demands from increasing in a metropolis–even while population is growing. On a per capita basis, the demand for water has decreased by 36% in Seattle since1990. Florida communities that have not done this well can look to Seattle and local communities for workable methods to dramatically improve water efficiency.

  1. Tatiana,
    You can find a post on SJRWMD and SWFWD trends by clicking on the “water conservation” category link at the bottom of the Seattle post. I address some other successes in the water conservation chapter of my book. Miami-Dade, for example, has a very good recent record. You also can track down some particular success stories in the annual SWFWMD water use reports.
