Abstract The St. Johns River Water Management District (District) contracted with Jones Edmunds to evaluate current and future potential for reducing potable water demands from retail customers within five utility service areas by implementing demand-side management practices. The participating utilities included Gainesville Regional Utilities, Leesburg, Palm Bay, Palm Coast, and St. Johns County. A previously completed pilot study used standard industry benchmarks to estimate water use and water conservation potential. This study expands on the pilot study by using account-level billing information from each of the participating utilities. Water savings potential and costs were estimated for residential and commercial demand-management programs over the 2010 to 2030 planning horizon through the process of joining account water use with property appraisal and population data. The primary tasks comprising this project were collecting data, refining methods, analyzing water use, estimating conservation potential, and incorporating feasibility.
