Use this calculator to estimate your annual water use and suggested donation amount.
Typically, water use is higher in the summer than in the winter. Enter the number of gallons of water used in one summer month and one winter month to calculate an average. You should be able to find these amounts on your water bill.
You can also balance multiple years of water use, including a full lifetime!
- Individual for a decade of water use – $450 for 600,000 gallons
- Family of 4 for a decade of water use – $1,200 for 1,600,000 gallons
- Individual for lifetime of water use (80 years) – $3,600 for 4,800,000 gallons
