Go Green - Water Conservation


FACTS ABOUT WATER CONSERVATION


In today’s world, water is a daily concern for people around the world and all over the United States. Read some interesting facts on how to conserve water in your home.

  Less than 2% of the Earth’s water supply is fresh water.
                              
  Of all the earth's water, 97% is salt water found in oceans and seas.
                              
  Only 1% of the earth's water is available for drinking water. Two %
      is frozen.
                              
  The human body is about 75% water.
                              
  A person can survive about a month without food, but only 5 to 7 days
      without water.
           
  Every day in the United States, we drink about 110 million gallons of
      water.
           
  Landscaping accounts for about half the water Californians use at home.
      Showers account for another 18 percent, while toilets use about 20 %.
           
  Showering and bathing are the largest indoor uses (27%) of water
      domestically.
           
  The average American uses 140-170 gallons of water per day.
                              
  If every household in America had a faucet that dripped once each
      second, 928 million gallons of water a day would leak away.
                              
  There are 7.48 gallons in a cubic foot of water. Therefore, 2000 cubic feet
      of water is 14,960 gallons.
                              
  An acre foot of water is about 326,000 gallons.  One-half acre foot is
      enough to meet the needs of a typical family for a year. There are 7.48
      gallons in a cubic foot of water.
                              
  It takes 3.3 acre feet of water to grow enough food for an average family
      for a year.
           
  A leaky faucet can waste 100 gallons a day. 
           
  One flush of the toilet uses 6 ½ gallons of water.
           
  An average bath requires 37 gallons of water.
            
  An average family of four uses 881 gallons of water per week just by
      flushing the toilet.
           
  The average 5-minute shower takes 15-25 gallons of water--around
      40 gallons are used in 10 minutes.
           
  Take short showers instead of baths. A full bathtub requires about 36
      gallons of water.
           
  You use about 5 gallons of water if you leave the water running while
      brushing your teeth.
           
  If you water your grass and trees more heavily, but less often, this saves
      water and builds stronger roots.
           
  Each person needs to drink about 2 ½quarts (80 ounces) of water every
      day.
           
  Water your lawn only when it needs it. If you step on the grass and it
      springs back up when you move, it doesn’t need water. If it stays flat, it
      does need water.
           
  Run your dishwasher and washing machine only when they are full.           
           
  When washing a car, use soap and water from a bucket. Use a hose with
      a shut-off nozzle for rinsing.
           
  Never put water down the drain when there may be another use for it such
      as watering a plant or garden, or cleaning.          
           
  Avoid flushing the toilet unnecessarily. Dispose of tissues, insects and other
      such waste in the trash rather than the toilet.
           
  When washing dishes by hand, fill one sink or basin with soapy water.
      Quickly rinse under a slow-moving stream from the faucet.
                              
  An automatic dishwasher uses 9 to 12 gallons of water while hand washing
      dishes can use up to 20 gallons.
           
  Store drinking water in the refrigerator rather than letting the tap run every
      time you want a cool glass of water.
           
  Water lawns during the early morning hours, or evening when temperatures
      and wind speed are the lowest. This reduces losses from evaporation.
           
  Do not hose down your driveway or sidewalk. Use a broom to clean
      leaves and other debris from these areas. Using a hose to clean a driveway
      wastes hundreds of gallons of water.                     
           
  Don’t leave the water running when brushing your teeth or shaving. Get in
      the habit of turning off the water when it’s not being used.
             
  Use of bowl of water to clean fruits & vegetables rather than running water
      over them. You can reuse this for your house plants.
                              
  Public water suppliers process 38 billion gallons of water per day for
      domestic and public use.
                              
  Approximately 1 million miles of pipelines and aqueducts carry water
      in the U.S. & Canada. That's enough pipe to circle the earth 40 times.

in the United States for domestic, farming, commercial, and water
testing purposes.

      wells and are responsible for treating and pumping the water themselves.
                              
  Industries released 197 million pounds of toxic chemicals into waterways
      in 1990.
                              
  You can refill an 8-oz glass of water approximately 15,000 times for the
      same cost as a six-pack of soda pop.
                              
  A dairy cow must drink four gallons of water to produce one gallon of
      milk.
                              
  300 million gallons of water are needed to produce a single day's supply of
      U.S. newsprint.
