Cma10 Residential Water Conservation

Assume that the average water usage of a community is approximately 130 gal per person per day. After implementing water saving practices, the average water usage drops to 87 gal per person per day. A 10 million gallon per day (MGD) wastewater treatment plant is used for which 60% of the flow is residential wastewater. Calculate the water savings in gallons per day (gal/day) and the percent reduction in water usage. Also calculate the current residential wastewater flow in gal/day, millions of gal (Mgal)/yr, lb/day and kg/day. Assume the specific gravity of the water to be 1.0.
