Water Consumption Hits U.S. Low

For once, we’re glad to see a downward trend in the U.S. that isn’t our stocks crashing. According to a new report from the U.S. Geological Survey, water consumption per day is at the lowest it has been in 45 years. This news is thanks to power plants and individuals both reducing the amount of water they utilizer in a single day. Previously, power plants assumed about 40 percent of all American water use, but a large decline in their consumption as new technologies and energy usage strategies are developed.

This is not to say that the individual isn’t also helping, as the per capita individual dropped from 88 to 82 gallons per day in their own water usage. In 2010, water consumption was at 354 billion gallons per day, which is a staggering number to think about considering the amount of third world countries that don’t have access to water. But now, we as a country have successfully lowered that number to 322 billion gallons per day, cutting out over 30 billion gallons daily. This is part of a “sharp but steady” drop that is intended to continue through the years, according to the USGA.
