This table summarizes standard consumptive use assumptions for permit-exempt well use in the Dungeness Watershed. Consumptive uses are those that reduce the amount or quality of water in the water source.
|Type of use||Users relying on a permit-exempt well withdrawal for water supply||Consumptive use|
|Domestic use (indoor use)||House on a septic system||10%|
|House served by a sewer system||100%|
|Irrigation (outdoor use)||Watering up to ½ acre non-commercial lawn or garden||90%|
|Using up to 5,000 gallons per day for agriculture industrial use||90%|
