Abstract

This article examines the impacts of COVID-19 restrictions on water usage in California, using anonymized customer water consumption daily data from a mid-sized city in Northern California (City). Results suggest increases in residential use and reductions in non-residential use. However, from June 2020, daily usage became stable and similar to the 2018–2019 levels.
