Welcome Aurora Water Customer,  
Understanding where and how much water we use is the first step in beginning to conserve.

The Residential Water Use Calculator serves as an analysis of your current water use and conservation potential, providing you with a long term plan to meet your conservation goals. It is recommended that you review the calculator before using it to determine what data you need to collect. This will be the longest part of the process. The Calculator requires specific information about your property, including:

1. Construction Year
2. Number of family members
3. Indoor appliance usage data
  (Toilet, shower, faucet, washing machine & dishwasher)
4. Zone-by-zone irrigation system details

Once this information is entered, determine which retrofit actions you are interested in taking under the retrofit options pulldown menus. Based on your decisions, your ‘Ranked Conservation Plan’ will be produced. As you complete these steps, you will be able to view your changes graphically on the following spreadsheet as your water use approaches your conservation goals. Finally, the Water Use Calculator will produce an ‘Irrigation Calendar’ based on your plant material, environmental factors, and irrigation system information.

Please be sure to save your progress frequently as the calculator will time out after 15 minutes of inactivity.
