Water consumption in Austrian households depends on socio-demographic and climatic factors. In this project, the relevant factors for differences in the per capita water consumption of the Austrian population are determined. The analysis is based real data of annual water consumption and, where available, high-resolution data from smart meters, which are provided by Austrian water supply utilities. In addition, factors for household-related differences in peak water consumption are derived, based on which mean values and ranges of the expected per capita water consumption are provided regionally and for different type of housing. The project intends to support Austrian municipalities in assessing the effects of settlement development and preferred housing type on future water requirements.
