South East Queensland Residential End Use Study: Final Report
MetadataShow full item record
Water end use analysis using high resolution smart meters and loggers is becoming increasingly popular to measure and assess the residential water consumption in urban areas of Australia. Previous end use studies in Australia have demonstrated that per capita and per household water consumption can vary considerably as a result of a number of factors, including socio-demographics, climate and household water appliance stock efficiency. The primary aim of this study was to quantify and characterise mains water end uses in a sample of 252 residential dwellings located within South East Queensland (SEQ). This report presents the methodology, results and discussion on the end use analysis for three monitoring periods over winter 2010, summer 2010-11 and winter 2011. This report forms part of the Reducing Water Grid Demand research theme for the Urban Water Security Research Alliance.
