2006 Residential Water Conservation Benchmarking Survey and Attribution/Consumption Analysis (pdf)
This survey of our direct service and wholesale water residential customers focuses on attitudes and behaviors relating to water use and conservation. Responses are compared to previous, similar surveys to see how these indicators have changed over time. This year for the first time we compared responses to the respondent's water consumption in cases where they provided their addresses (over 60% of respondents did so). This provided an additional dimension to the survey allowing correlations between attitudes and behaviors and relative consumption.
