How Much Water Does the Average U.S. Household Use Each Day?

Each person in the United States uses from 80 to 200 gallons (303 to 757 liters) of water a day.

Most of that is used to flush toilets.

About 70% of the freshwater in the world is consumed by agriculture.

Water is used as a solvent in manufacturing and plays an important role in the world economy.

A recent report suggests that by 2030, water demand will exceed supply by 50% in some developing regions of the world.
