A number of activities can lead to an increase or decrease in water usage over a period of time. Increases can possibly stem from guests in town, filling up a hot tub or pool, leaks inside or outside the home, or turning on the irrigation system in the summer. Decreases in water usage could potentially result from installing high efficient appliances, reducing irrigation schedules, fixing leaks, or members of your household moving out.
