Summary

This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Data Release provides derivative statistics of water used by Kansas public-supply systems in 2015. Gallons per capita per day is calculated using self-reported information in the “Part B: Monthly Water Use Summary” and “Part C: Population, Service Connections, and Water Rates” sections of the Kansas Department of Agriculture, Division of Water Resources' (DWR) annual municipal water use report (see appendixes at http://dx.doi.org/10.3133/ds964 for an example of a municipal water use report form.) Percent unaccounted for water is calculated using self-reported information in “Part B: Monthly Water Use Summary” of the DWR’s municipal water-use report. The published statistics from the previous 4 years [...]

Purpose

This data release includes information useful to Kansas public-­supply systems in the preparation of their water conservation plans. Other benefits include peer comparison among public water-­supply systems. The information presented is also useful in directing State-­funded technical assistance to public water suppliers for leak detection, meter testing, and in the identification of high water­loss systems.
