HOW MUCH WATER DOES IT TAKE TO

  • Brush your teeth? - 1 gallon

  • Flush the toilet? - 2 to 4 gallons (each flush)

  • Take a shower or bath? - 18 to 26 gallons

  • Use the dishwasher? - 8 to 15 gallons

  • Wash the car? – 50-80 gallons

 

 

Of all the water on Earth, only a small amount is available for us to use:

97.2% of the Earth's water supply is salt water
Only
2.8% is fresh water!

Of the total supply of water on Earth:

  • 0.6% is groundwater

  • 0.01% is in lakes and streams

  • 2.2% is in glaciers and icecaps

  • 0.001% is water vapor

 

Indoors, most of the water a family uses is in the bathroom.

Saving water is important. In the bathroom, the easiest way to save water are:

1)  Shut off the faucet while you brush your teeth or take shorter showers.

2) Do not using the toilet to flush trash.

3) Installing low-flush toilets and low-flow showerheads can help save lots of water.

4) An ultra-low-flush toilet uses just 1.5 gallons per flush compared to 4 gallons per flush for a traditional toilet.

A water well is an excavation or structure created in the ground by digging, driving, boring or drilling to access groundwater in underground aquifers. The well water is drawn by an electric submersible pump, a vertical turbine pump, a hand-pump or a mechanical pump (e.g. from a water-pumping windmill). It can also be drawn up using containers, such as buckets, that are raised mechanically or by hand.

 

In the water world, water is commonly measured in acre feet. But what is an acre foot? One acre foot of water can fill one acre of land, approximately the size of a football field, 1 foot deep. An acre-foot contains 325,900 gallons of water, and can supply the annual indoor and outdoor needs of one to two urban households.
