Who buys the most water? Who flushes the toilets the most? The El Dorado Irrigation District’s 2012 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report has the answers.

Placerville, of course, is the district’s biggest water customer, spending $451,450 in 2012 and accounting for 1.87 percent of the district’s water sales. Following a new contract, this year its estimated payment will be $465,000, according to EID Finance Director Mark Price.

Cameron Park Golf Course is second at $94,370, accounting for 0.39 percent of water sales. Serrano Golf Course isn’t even on this list. It keeps its fairways and greens green with recycled water from the El Dorado Hills Wastewater Treatment Plant.

Red Hawk Casino is third with a 2012 bill of $80,074.

El Dorado Hills Community Services district, with its pool and parks, is fourth, spending $79,673 on water. Fifth place is held by the El Dorado Union High School District and its four comprehensive high schools, even though all now have artificial turf on their main athletic fields. EDUHSD spent $69,501. Baseball and softball fields are still natural turf. Buckeye Union School District is sixth with a bill of $55,947.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is seventh with a $22,740 bill. The Forest Service is part of USDA.

Visman Brothers is eighth with a $8,859 bill in 2012.

Battjes HJ Trust is ninth with a bill of $6,115. Barbara Hoover’s Hooverville Orchards is the 10th biggest water customer with an annual bill of $5,884.

None of the big water users are among the top 10 largest wastewater customers. Red Hawk Casino, of course, has its own on-site disposal system. The No. 1 wastewater user in 2012 was Lake Oaks Mobile Home Park, spending $162,060 and accounting for 0.89 percent of wastewater sales.

Vineyards at Valley View was second with a $154,335 bill.

Cameron Park Senior Living was third with a $100,985 bill. Lake Forest Apartments was fourth for $97,554. Mercy Housing of California was fifth for $79,409.

Cameron Oaks Investment Co. was sixth with a bill of $73,549.

Three mobile home parks held down seventh, eighth and ninth places. In order they are Cameron Park Mobile Home Park for $73,971, Diamond Springs Mobile Home Park for $71,979 and Crestview Mobile Home Park for $48,945.

Royal Heights Townhouses held the 10th place with a sewer bill of $28,596.
