Water Consumption

Water Use Ranges from 49 to 164 Gallons per Person per Day

Given San Bernardino County’s arid climate, effective water management is essential to ensure that the county has an ample water supply now and in the future. Statewide mandatory urban water restrictions, which went into effect in June 2015 and were lifted in May 2016, imposed water usage limits and prompted increased conservation and recycling. This indicator measures estimated residential water consumption in gallons per capita per day from large water suppliers serving San Bernardino County. It also shows the percentage of water saved over a three-year period. The water suppliers presented serve an estimated population of just over 2,000,000 (or roughly 94% of the San Bernardino County population).
