ABSTRACT As it is known, the importance and consumption of water is increasing day by day due to industrial growth, population growth, advancement of technology and increasing living standards. Because of the limited water resources, the design, planning and forecasting of water transmission and distribution systems should be made more carefully and the water resources should be used more efficiently. In this context, the importance of the factors affecting water demand is increasing day by day.  Population, economic cycles, education, technology, climatic conditions, price, and many other factors have their effects on water consumption. By designating these effects in a healthy and reliable way, it is possible to design systems that are more reliable and to use water resources more efficiently. In the present study, by using water consumption data of 4 different neighborhoods of the central districts of Konya with different characteristics, the effect of meteorological variables on water consumption according to the characteristics of neighborhoods was investigated by using Multiple Regression Analysis.
