Do desert cities use more water than other cities?

    It’s not so much do they use more water as much as it is where that water comes from. A city that may have a very dry climate, but collects all of its rainwater and recycles all wastewater into more usable water…while using a higher volume of water overall is still using the water more sustainably than a city like Phoenix, Arizona, which pipes in the majority of its water from the Colorado River.

    But speaking from a climatological perspective, yes, a desert city will use more water than a non-desert city, in that human beings will be subjected to a drier climate and will need to hydrate themselves more.

    Along with ivanderlee’s response, you can especially use more water in the desert if you engage in landscaping and cultivating plants that are not native to the area.
