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.
