    Have they taken into account single fifo households. My house is empty 4 weeks out of 5 then I probably only use 80 to 100 litres a day max when I'm home, 40 litres a shower, 10 litres toilet, 10 litres cooking/dishes( manual), 50 litres washing once a week, not everyone just wastes water

    Or maybe just some good use of rain water tanks.

    I took the time to read the report; a house was considered vacant when it uses less than 50L per day. This was said to allow for leaks etc, and is within the scientific recommendations for this type of analysis.
