How much water do you use

How much water do local hoseholds use per month? / FOX 31

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.
