|Estimate of Yearly Municipal Water Use:|
Equal to the average daily flow per capita multiplied by the total urban population (see: http://www.abll.ca/tables/Human_Population/Provincial_Population) multiplied by 365.25 and converted into cubic metres. Since the urban population is not calculated in 2004, it is assumed to be the average of the urban population in 2001 and the urban population in 2006.
Use with caution. This column is only a rough estimate, and may be significantly different than the actual statistic.
