Water Consumption
Water Consumption
City role: Significant 
Millions of cubic feet per year; "year" is second year in three-year period (e.g., 2005 is average of 2004-06). 

Water usage fluctuates each year depending on weather, price, and business and residential growth. Since 2001, the three-year rolling average of annual water consumption by City customers (not customers in the Novelty Hill Urban Planned Developments) has ranged from 263.9 million to 299.6 million cubic feet. Redmond exceeded its conservation goal for 2007-2013. The new goal set by Cascade Water Alliance is a 1.72 percent total reduction from 2014 to 2019. That amounts to a total reduction goal of 4.65 million cubic feet of water by 2019. 

Water consumption in 2014 totaled 278.2 million cubic feet. The three-year rolling average through 2014 was 272.3 million cubic feet. Water consumption has increased 3.3 percent since 2012, but it has decreased 4.4 percent since 2009.
