The city of New York Uses The Most Water. Sound like a lot of water, doesn’t it?
In the 1980s, 10 million people used 500 million gallons of water a day. That works out to 50 gallons for every person. That is less than the average for the rest of the U.S.A.
Throughout our country, most people use 87 gallons per day. Only two of those gallons are for drinking and cooking. Did you know that things like food use water, too?
