Well, here’s some good news! Americans are conserving water at a higher volume than ever before, according to a prominent US Geological Survey.

In 1980, we were using around 112 gallons of water per day each. This plummeted to 88 gallons per day in 2005 and 82 gallons per day in 2015, marking a 27 percent decrease, despite the population increasing by 4 percent during that time.

       Water Conservation Becoming Ever More Necessary

 

 

Water Leaf    Ironically, though water covers two thirds of our planet, clean drinking water and in some places, water itself, is becoming scarcer by the minute.  City municipalities are struggling to keep up with demand from an ever-growing population. 

Cities and states around the country are imploring people to reduce their water usage through increased conservation measures.  

 

West Coast Water Woes

earth drop on grass   Water is the sustainer of life.  Every living plant and creature on planet Earth depends on water for their existence.  

From the sixteen thousand pound African elephant, to the three-gram, Ruby Throated hummingbird, and all animals in between, none can live without water.

Each year the average person (if there is such a thing) drinks up to fifty-eight gallons of water.

I thought it might be interesting and a little fun to lay out some fascinating facts for you about water, its consumption, and mystery.
