About DRBC water audits

According to the DRBC, it has been estimated that 6 billion gallons of water per day are lost within the United States, with 150 million gallons of that water originating from within the Delaware River Basin. Water distribution infrastructure failures and leaks, along with erroneous metering and accounting, are the primary culprits for these losses. In an effort to report, track, and eliminate this wasteful use of potable water, the DRBC requires annual filing.
