Your online Ann Arbor water bill statement provides access to the city’s nationally recognized water consumption tracking data system. This feature allows you to track your daily/monthly/annual water usage by your account number (linked to your address) and highlights trends in personal water use. Use your information to identify periods of highest water usage.
If you see an increase in summer usage, it may be due to your outdoor water irrigation practices. You can reduce lawn areas with native species landscaping, which requires far less supplemental watering. In addition, replacing older appliances with more-efficient models has the potential to reduce U.S. water consumption by over one third, according to the American Waterworks Association.
Did you know?
That’s roughly how much of your home’s water consumption is flushed down the toilet.
That’s how many times you’ll likely flush a toilet in your lifetime.
Older toilets (bought before 1994) often use 5 gallons per flush, or more, while newer standard toilets use 1.6 gallons, and U.S. EPA-approved WaterSense toilets use only 1.28 gallons. Compare models when you replace a toilet – you can save water and money over the long haul!
