What is a CCF?

Have you ever looked at your utility bill and wondered what does CCF mean? Utilities can use different units of measure but the most common for water is a CCF (centum cubic feet) which can also be called HCF (hundred cubic feet).  The most familiar unit of measure for water is gallons.  One CCF equals 748 gallons. According to EPA, the average American uses about 100 gallons of water per day.  Meaning on average a family of four uses 400 gallons of water per day. A toilet averages about 27 percent of indoor household water use. Many utility companies offer rebates to replace old toilets that use large amounts of water with highly efficient WaterSense toilets. If you are a City Utilities customer, you may qualify for a rebate of 50 percent of the purchase price, up to $75.
