This resource contains standardized monthly water use data for single family residences (SFR) in the cities of Logan (11/2014 - 11/2018) and Providence (10/2017 - 05/2020), Utah, USA. Meter readings by Logan and Providence city are conducted on different days of the month, depending on the utility’s working schedule. Thus, the volume of water used within a given month must be estimated from two meter readings. We calculated standardized monthly water use, i.e., from the first to the last day of each month, as follows: Vn = DnMR1 * VMR1 / DMR1 + DnMR2 * V_MR2 / D_MR2 , where, Vn is the volume of water used for a month n. VMR1 is the water volume from the first meter reading (MR1) that contains water use for month n. DMR1 is the number of days covered by MR1 (i.e., the number of days since the previous meter reading), and DnMR1 is the number of days within month n to which MR1 applies. VMR2, DMR2, and DnMR2 have the same information for the second meter reading (MR2) that contains water use for month n.
