      How much water do you use

      How much water do local hoseholds use per month?

      In the Facebook story of the day, you wanted to know the average amount of water a local household uses per month.

      There are so many different factors that play a role in water usage that it's hard to give an exact number.Variables such as the size of the family, if the house has a pool or not, and even the time of year, all affect water usage.

      Lorie Farkas, the Assistant GM of WG&L says, "The best thing to do is go by what our minimum is, up to the first 3,000 gallons you're only paying $10.31, which is so inexpensive, compared to other parts even in Georgia."

      Farkas says that throughout the winter, a household of 2 people will generally use around that 3,000 gallon minimum.
