Initial Water Audit:

Determine the flow rate of a faucet that you regularly use by collecting water in a container of known volume and tracking how many seconds it takes to fill the container.  Repeat 3 times (or more), and calculate an average.

___________ (volume of container) / __________ (minutes to fill) = _________volume/min

___________ (volume of container) / __________ (minutes to fill) = _________volume/min

___________ (volume of container) / __________ (minutes to fill) = _________volume/min

Average Flow Rate: _________volume/min

For two full days, keep a log of how many seconds or minutes you use that faucet for.  Determine the total number of minutes the faucet is used per day. Then determine how many gallons or liters per day that is.

Day 1: Total minutes used _____________

Day 2: Total minutes used _____________

Average number of minutes used per day: _____________

Avg number of gallons or liters used per day =

Avg flow rate ______ x Avg minutes used _______ = _______ gallons or liters per day

Extrapolate use over an entire year:

_______ gallons or liters per day x 365 days =  ________________gallons or liters per year

Extrapolate use for all residents in Florida for a year:

________gallons or liters per year x 21,000,000 residents =

_________________gallons or liters used by all Florida residents per year

Water Conservation Plan:

Consider how you might change your behavior to reduce the amount of water you use from that faucet. Try those behaviors for two days, and track your use of the faucet for those two days.

Behavior change:  I will ______________________________________________________

Day 1: Total minutes used _____________

Day 2: Total minutes used _____________

Average number of minutes used per day: _____________

Avg number of gallons or liters used per day =

Avg flow rate ______ x Avg minutes used _______ = _______ gallons or liters per day

How many gallons or liters per day to you save with this behavior?

Volume used before conservation behavior __________

– Volume used after conservation behavior ___________

= ______________gallons or liters saved per day by conservation behavior.

Extrapolate savings over an entire year:

_______ gallons or liters saved per day x 365 days =  _________gallons or liters saved per year

Extrapolate savings if all residents in Florida changed their behavior in this way for a year:

________gallons or liters saved per year x 21,000,000 residents =

______________gallons or liters saved by all Florida residents per year

Discussion Board:

• Share your thoughts about how simple conservation behaviors can make a substantial impact on regional water supplies.
• compare the amount you could potentially save (per day or per year) with your simple conservation behavior to some other interesting statistic about freshwater use.
