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 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 2015 totaled 296.8 million cubic feet. The three-year average for 2013-2015 was 281.4 million cubic feet. Water consumption has increased 16.2 percent since 2011. From 2014 to 2015, consumption increased 6.7 percent, with irrigation consumption increasing 21.1 percent, accounting for 49 percent of the total year-to-year consumption increase.
