Water Footprint Calculator

Welcome to GRACE’s Water Footprint Calculator (WFC) which features a brief set of questions that will get you thinking about how much water you and your household use and how water connects to almost every aspect of your life. The WFC will help you explore how you use water, estimate your household’s water footprint and learn ways to conserve.

NOTE: Our Water Footprint Calculator accounts for major water-using activities and behaviors. We used data from water use survey results and national averages of water use for energy, shopping and food consumption. Your results are not an exact measurement but rather an estimate based on your choices and habits. Your footprint varies day-to-day based on your water fixture flow rates, your diet, your energy use and your purchases.

SOURCES BEHIND THE WFC: The WFC uses data from the U.S. Geological Survey, the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and several other sources to calculate an individual’s water footprint.
