§ 52.40  REDUCTION OF USE GOALS.
   (A)   It is the goal of the City Council to reduce the future water requirements by adopting conservation measures that will prevent the otherwise expected rise in per capita use of water, and endeavor to maintain the current level of per capita demand. This goal recognizes that there are factors that will increase the average per capita use of water unless additional conservation actions are taken. These factors that may increase the per capita use are projected increases in per capita income, increases in the employment-population ratio, increases in the proportion of single-family homes, increases in the number of persons living in each household, and uses by additional industries as the economy of the community expands.
   (B)   The City of Harker Heights Water Conservation Plan 5- and 10-year goals for water savings beginning in the 2020 plan year are as follows:

1.   Total GPCD = (Total gallons in system ÷ permanent population) ÷ 365
2.   Residential GPCD = (Gallons used for residential use ÷ residential population) ÷ 365
3.   Water loss GPCD = (Total water loss ÷ permanent population) ÷ 365
4.   Water loss Percentage = (Total water loss ÷ total gallons in system) x 100; or (Water loss GPCD ÷ total GPCD) x 100 GPCD-Gallons Per Capita Per Day
