http://thesource.melbournewater.com.au/content/media_releases/media_releases/20081124.asp Melburnians are being asked to reduce their household water consumption to 155L per person per day. We have 4 people in our household, 2 adults and 2 small children. I work from home full-time, while the wife is at home 80% of the time, and we have the typical household washing regime that is associated with 2 small children. Pulled out the water-bill to check our daily consumption, expecting a rude shock given that we don't really take any explicit water saving measures, are home pretty much full-time, and we don't have water-saver friendly showerheads fitted. We do have a drought friendly garden that we never, ever water though. Our consumption it turns out => 111L per person per day, or 44L/day below the target, and apparently 54L/day below the average. This then got me thinking. Given that I don't consider ourselves as being THAT thrifty with water, and yet easily coming in under both the target and the average by a huge amount makes me wonder what the heck is everyone doing to average the current 165L per person per day?
