Waterwise Citizen Science: Your Water Diary
How much water do we really use a day? We need your help to find out!
We all know that the average UK person uses between 140-150 litres of water per day. In the water industry this is known as PCC (per capita consumption) and is calculated by metering a number of homes and dividing by the number of people that live there (the full guidance on calculating PCC can be found here on the Ofwat website).
Waterwise is carrying out some citizen science research to delve deeper into where we use water. We would love you to be a part of this research.
Your participation will help us discover how much personal water use takes place outside of the home and how many litres a day could be added to the usual standard measure of PCC (which only measures water use at home) to describe total water use per person per day.
If you would like to take part, it would be fantastic if you could print out and use the form below to keep a diary of all the water you use outside of your home for 2 weeks. You can then email or post the form back to email@example.com or Lydia Makin, Waterwise, 334-354 Grays Inn Road, London WC1X 8BP. The deadline to return your water diary is Friday 4th October, thank you.
