Calculating Your Water Consumption
How much water do you use on a daily basis? According to a 2011 study sponsored by California Department of Water Resources, an average single family in California consumes more than 360 gallons of water per day. However, 2013 turned out to be one of the driest years on record. In light of Governor Jerry Brown’s declaration of a statewide drought emergency,a better question is what will the 20 percent cut in water mean for the average Californian? With the help of interactive charts, KQED’S The Lowdown explains the numbers behind indoor and outdoor residential water use by region, and water consumption for various household appliances to give insight on how you can save water.
