Congratulations to the City Council of Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada! I applaude your recent decision (March) to install water meters in all city residences by 2013. Kamloops city residents use an average of 790 Litres/Person/Day (a seasonal range of 430-1800 of L/P/D), and that has to change. Water awareness will increase, as the Kamloops residents equate their behavior to their water meter bills. There is a lot of technology out there to help them keep thier current lifestyle: i.e rain sensors for automatic sprinkler systems, rain barrel collection systems and the plain-and-simple hose nozzle.
I challenge Kamloops to relinquish its current status of the "one of the world's highest water users" by 2013. I live in Kamloops and I will do my part.
Here is a look at water use statistics for Kamloops's neighbouring city, Kelowna.
Update: Implementation of water meters underway.
