Average Monthly Residential Water Usage in Claremont
- Average monthly usage for residential customers in Claremont is 21 Ccf, the equivalent of 2,100 cubic feet or 15,708 gallons. This is driven primarily by larger homes and more outdoor water use.
- The City’s water comes from two sources. Sixty (60) percent comes from local groundwater supplies, which Golden State Water maintains. The balance is imported from the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) via Three Valleys Municipal Water District. Imported water is more expensive than local groundwater as MWD rates have increased by almost 100 percent since 2006.
- Golden State Water imports 36 percent of Claremont’s water to meet demand.
Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP)
UWMPs are prepared to ensure adequate water supplies are available to meet existing and future water demands. Every five years, Golden State Water and all water systems that supply more than 3,000 acre-feet of water per year or serve more than 3,000 connections are required to update their UWMPs.
