Information Resources to accompany the
letter to the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality


  1. Spreadsheet documenting historic water use in the Urban Area from 1983-2010. Data is further disaggregated by city, county, and UVA demand.
  2. The Demand Analysis submitted as part of the permit application based its projections on historic water use from 1973-2001, a period dominated by (high flow) residential plumbing fixtures associated with old Charlottesville housing stock. This graph of data from 1983- 2010 reveals the source of data for the projections. Newer urban development in the outlying areas of Albemarle did not play a significant role in water use until the 1990s.
  3. Water use in the Charlottesville Urban Service Area began to decline after 1999, in response to federal, state and local mandates on plumbing efficiency.
  4. Mandatory conservation measures imposed in the mid-late 1990s have had a dramatic impact on the Urban Service Area as Charlottesville-Albmemarle is a heavily residential community. (see pp 76-77)
