3. I cut my water use considerably due to the drought or other factors, can I reduce the Table of Average Uses factor to reflect this?

No. The Table of Average Uses is an average amount used per year for the designated crop or domestic use. It takes into account dry years and wet years and averages them out. The only way that you can reduce the amount calculated is by farming less area, or reporting less domestic use by reducing people in the home, or watering less landscaping areas. Additionally, you can choose to install a meter and avoid the Table of Average Uses to measure your water use.
