If you repaired a leak or have more than four residents in your home you may need a water budget variance.
Residential water budgets have two components: an indoor budget based on the number of residents, and an outdoor budget, based on your home lot size.
Each single family home has a default budget of 4 people per home. Each multi-family home receives a default budget of 2 people per home. Each resident is budgeted 55 gallons of water per day. So, the typical indoor budget for a single-family home is 240 gallons per day and 120 gallons per day for a multi-family home.
The outdoor budget is determined by the landscaped area which is the size of the area that is being irrigated. Pools and spas are also included in the landscaped area. County Assessor parcel data and the City's Geographic Information System were used to determine the landscaped area for your home.
Requesting a Variance
If you have more people per home than is in the default budget, please submit a variance form so we can match your budget to your circumstances.
