Waukesha water use continues to decline

The city’s water use declined for the fifth consecutive year in 2010 to an average daily demand of 6.69 million gallons a day, records show. Actual demand was 1.21 million gallons a day less than the 2010 estimate included in the city’s request for Great Lakes water. The higher estimate, provided by a consultant in mid-2009, was based on projections of increasing water use on several fronts that didn’t come to pass, said Nancy Quirk, technical services manager for the Waukesha Water Utility.
