Water Consumption by Postal Sector

This searchable map presents a colour scale view of the levels of water consumed by non-household supply points for each of the 9,000+ postal sectors in England and Wales. Map segments visualised with darker shading denote postal sectors with higher total consumption bandings.

Starting from a general national overview, you can zoom in on a particular geographical zone. The urban areas will appear much clearer.

Clicking on a specific shape on the map will highlight the postal sector’s borders and display a pop-up showing textual information such as the location name, the postal sector itself, the number of supply points within it and its average water consumption expressed in litres per day.

The map uses data extracted from CMOS. Water consumption is based on the best view of consumption from CMOS settlement averaged across the previous 18 months. Postal sector-level totals are obtained by aggregating supply point and consumption data for each supply point postcode address.
