The article presents an analysis of water consumption in selected settlement units of Lower Silesia and Lubuskie Provinces, with the number of inhabitants varying from less than 200 to more than 8000. Based on data over several years, values characterizing water consumption in individual systems were calculated, i.e., the indicator of water consumption per capita as well as hourly and daily irregularity coefficients. Consumption during various time frames – in individual months of the year, days of the week and hours of the day - was also compiled. The obtained results were the bases for comparison with values provided by Guidelines, which are the basis for calculating for water demand; and Regulation, which is the basis for billing water consumption, as well as with the results of other authors. Tendencies characterizing water consumption in the subsequent years were also indicated. A typical weekly and daily (24-hour) course of consumption was observed, with the course being characteristic of small settlements with varying numbers of inhabitants.
