The goal for this project, done in conjunction with the U.S. Geological Survey, Caribbean District, was to discover water use trends and consumer water conservation attitudes in order to recommend water conservation strategies for the municipality of Fajardo, Puerto Rico. We analyzed water use and conservation practices of domestic, commercial, industrial and institutional water user samples, based on socio-economic level and location in the water distribution system. Based on our results, we then presented four possible strategic water conservation plans for Fajardo.
