Are you up for a challenge? I have disclosed in the graph below my own household's water use between June 2006 and December 2014, as reported on my water bills. Without any more information about my household's characteristics (except that it is residential, on a single 5/8" meter, and using drinking water and wastewater service from one utility), this is the extent of knowledge that my utility has about my household. Yet, my water use data - which are present in the utility's billing records - reveal much about my household.
