Gross Per Capita Water Consumption & Share from Recycled Water

Silicon Valley

Data for Santa Clara County was provided by Santa Clara Valley Water District (SCVWD). Scotts Valley Water District (SVWD) provided Scotts Valley data. Bay Area Water Supply & Conservation Agency (BAWSCA) provided data for member agencies servicing San Mateo County and for Alameda County Water District, which services the Cities of Fremont, Union City and Newark. These agencies include Brisbane/GVMID, Estero, Burlingame, Hillsborough, CWS – Bear Gulch, Menlo Park, CWS – Mid Peninsula, Mid-Peninsula, CWS – South SF, Millbrae, Coastside, North Coast, Redwood City, Daly City, San Bruno, East Palo Alto, and Westborough. Cordilleras serves residents in San Mateo County, but is not a BAWSCA member and therefore was not included in this analysis. Data for FY 2017-18 is preliminary. Population figures used to calculate per capita values include the population served by each water agency, and are provided by the agencies directly. Total water consumption figures used to calculate per capita values and recycled percentage of total water used do not include consumption for agriculture or by private well-owners in the SCVWD data. In the BAWSCA data, the small number of agricultural users in the service area are treated as a class of commercial user and so are included in the consumption figures. Scotts Valley Water District does not serve agricultural customers, so total water consumption figures used to compute both the per capita consumption and the recycled percentage of total water used are the same.

*FY 2017-2018 data is preliminary.
