10 N A V A L F A C I L I T I E S E N G I N E E R I N G S E R V I C E C E N T E R How Much Does Your Water Cost? How Much Water Do You Use?

11 N A V A L F A C I L I T I E S E N G I N E E R I N G S E R V I C E C E N T E R How Much Does Water Cost?  Free - “We Pump It Ourselves”  Unit Rate Shown on Utility Bill  No Standard Calculation or Formula For Determining Water Cost

12 N A V A L F A C I L I T I E S E N G I N E E R I N G S E R V I C E C E N T E R How Much Does Water Cost?  Can’t just use an average value - $0.87 at Bangor, Washington - $4.22 at Navy Post Graduate School  Depends on many factors - How deep are your wells? - How pure is the water? - Surface or groundwater supply?

13 N A V A L F A C I L I T I E S E N G I N E E R I N G S E R V I C E C E N T E R How Much Water Is Used?  Showers: gpm avg 5 min pcd  Toilets: gpf Flushed 7 times/day 4 - home 3 - work/school  Urinals: gpf - Used 75% of time
