I'm using KVUE 24 News Water Usage as my source. I could not find any data on the COA site.
Dialog: (From the previous July, 17th Graph)
Ok you zero and nine people,
using up all the water,
we know who you are,
and where you live.
About those 0&9 people:
-- 0&9 day (Friday) was the last day before they announced the ration.
The usage increased every day for more than 2 weeks before that (the 1st graph),
guaranteeing mathematically that whatever day they announce the ration on
would have the highest cumulative total (the 2nd graph). To add to the
bias, Fridays are historically the busiest watering day (3rd graph). The
0&9'ers were just the lucky ones to catch the blame!
-- It will be interesting to see what the graph will do over the next few
weeks, with the ration going on!
See the Animated Graph July 17-20, 2000" (108K).
How big is your rainwater collection system?
If you mean the collection areas, see the Rainwater Collection Areas diagram.
The current storage capacity is about 3,000 Gallons, and it takes about one inch of rain to fill it to full from empty including the calculated loss which has been calculated by my Raincalc Software to be about 14 percent.
