Abstract
  • The consumptive water use of six cities in the Willamette Basin of northwestern Oregon was evaluated for the period 1960-66. Consumptive use ratios were obtained by analyzing data from monthly water supply and sewage flow records. The average annual consumptive use for the six cities was found to be 26 percent, and the average monthly ratios varied from essentially zero in the winter months to as high as 53 percent in July and August. The principal factors affecting consumptive use were found to be weather conditions, lawn watering, water system losses, cost of water, air conditioning, and proportion of water used for industrial purposes. While not affecting consumptive use, per se, sewer infiltration, storm runoff, and incomplete water or sewer systems can affect the calculated consumptive use ratios. The extent to which a water right is consumptive is inferred by the use to which the water is put. On the basis of existing water law and past court decisions, it is concluded that a city has the legal right to consume the full amount of its municipal water right providing the water is used strictly in accordance with the conditions of its permit.
