Waste Water Flow Rates

Wastewater flow rates can be used to roughly determine the number of people served, however, using this data to estimate a numberof  visitors at any given time is by no means precise.  Many factors come into play.

  • Low-flow fixtures reduce water usage
  • Water usage can vary widely from 70-120 gallons per person per day
  • Visitors in town for the day only as opposed to those that stay overnight
  • Special events in the area that could cause a spike.

Any use of this data is purely an estimate.
