1) Savings
Municipal use
• Per capita use decreased by 12 percent to 38 percent since 1990
• Uses ranges from 153 GPCD to 314 GPCD.
• At least 1.7 MAFY saved as compared to 1990 per capita levels
Municipal and industrial reuse
• 700 KAFY reuse in 2012.
• A significant portion of treated wastewater flows are used for nonmunicipals uses including groundwater recharge, agricultural uses,
and wetland habitats.
• In some metropolitan areas, greater than 90 percent of the reusable
supply is currently being reused
Accounting for both changes in per capita use and water reuse, M&I water
use could have been nearly 2.4 MAFY higher in 2010.
2) Innovative Conservation and Reuse
Programs
Over 400 conservation and reuse programs reviewed
Selected 34 programs as case studies

3) Projected Additional Savings by 2030
• Conservation: 700 KAFY*
• Reuse: 400 KAFY
* for the water providers for which numeric targets were identified
compared to 2010 per capita water use rates
4) Impact of savings on Colorado River use
Municipal providers in the metropolitan areas receiving
CR water manage their water supplies conjunctively
and many must use surface water supplies first to
protect groundwater or prevent groundwater mining and
its consequences. Additional M&I conservation and
reuse has the potential to reduce the amount of future
development of CR water. However, in many regions,
conservation and reuse may not result in substantial
reductions in diversions of CR water because
conservation is typically used to either meet future
growth or offset/delay the need for future water
supplies. Municipal water providers are planning to use
their full entitlements to CR water.
5) Categories of Potential Opportunities
1. Outdoor use
2. Social norming with water customers
3. Integration of water/energy conservation
programs
4. Integration of land and water use planning
5. Goal setting for conservation and reuse programs
6. Funding and resources for conservation programs
7. Water system losses
8. Partnerships with commercial, institutional and
industrial users
9. Conservation oriented water rates and incentive
programs
10. Regulations and ordinances
