Jacksonville's Water Hogs Let Millions of Gallons Go Down the Drain

The average family uses about 6,000 gallons of water a month. Each person in the house uses 90 gallons a day, and if you think that's a lot, wait until you see how much the water hogs in the city consume.

Most households are using about 72,000 gallons of water a year.

The top water hog on our list uses 1,489,949 gallons a year. That's 124,000 gallons a month.

The average family: about $60 a year on water.

The top offenders? JEA said they've seen bills hit $17,000 a year in water usage alone.
