Usage Guidance

  • This metric is intended to capture the amount of potable water produced/provided for commercial sale by the organization and not water for the organization's own consumption. Bulk water production is usually sold to a utility. The buyer or purchaser of this water is referred to as the offtaker.
  • Potable water is water safe enough to be consumed by humans or used with low risk of immediate or long-term harm. Potable water can be used for domestic purposes, drinking, cooking, and personal hygiene.
  • Organizations interested in reporting on water production should report against Water Provision Capacity of Products Sold: Potable (PD1403) and/or Water Provision capacity of Product: Potable (PD6929).
