The district estimated the water park will use about 6.2 million gallons of water — equivalent to about 50 Homes. But Holland said that’s incorrect.
Here is her rough estimate:
Average Water Customer = 127,000 gallons per year
1 Time/Year Draining of Pools:
300,000 initial fill
660,000 Seasonal Maintenance
222,000 Off Season Maintenance
1,182,000 gallons estimated per year
which is the equivalent of 9.3 households
Before you ask, Doug, I don’t have time today to go back to the water folks and figure this out.
Also, Holland said that so far the city has sold more than 750 season passes and scheduled 30 birthday parties, which she said were pretty strong figures. Time will tell.
