PostSubject: WATER TRIVIA...   Sun Dec 26, 2010 1:36 pm



The amount of water on Earth now is about the same as there was millions of years ago.


2 percent of the Earths water is locked in ice caps and glaciers.

Water regulates the Earth’s temperature.
It also regulates the temperature of the human body!

The average total home water use for each person in the U.S. is about 50 gallons a day.

More water is used in the bathroom than any other place in the home.

A dripping faucet can waste up to 2,000 gallons of water a year.

Up to 90 percent of water used to sprinkle lawns can be lost to the atmosphere through evaporation.

Turn off the tap in your bathroom while you brush your teeth.
Take shorter showers.
Don't let the water run constantly while you're washing or rinsing dishes.
Fill a pitcher with tap water and put it in the fridge, rather than running the tap every time you want a cold drink!
Clean sidewalks and driveways with a broom--not the hose!
Water your lawn in the early morning to avoid evaporation.
Repair dripping faucets.
Place a layer of mulch around trees and plants to retain water.


Approximately two-thirds of residential interior water use is for toilet flushing and bathing.

The use of water-saving toilets, shower heads, and faucet aerators can cut this usage in half.
(Installation of low-consumption toilets alone recently resulted in a 45 percent savings in water use in a Dover, Del. office building.)

A garden hose can discharge up to six-and-a-half gallons per minute with normal household pressure.

Hot water leaks not only are a source of waste , but a waste of the energy (and the money) used to heat it.

A top-loading clothes washer uses between 40 and 55 gallons of water per load.

Front-loading models use roughly half that amount.

A dishwasher uses between eight and 12 gallons of water per load.

You don't need to buy bottled water for health reasons if your drinking water meets all of the federal, state, or provincial drinking water standards. Bottled water can costs up to 1,000 times more than municipal drinking water.

About two thirds of the human body is water. 70% of your skin is water.

About 800,000 water wells are drilled each year in the United States for domestic, farming, commercial, and water testing purposes.

Toilets use an average of 27 gallons per person per day.

Industries released 197 million pounds of toxic chemicals into waterways in 1990.

You can survive about a month without food, but only 5 to 7 days without water.

You can refill an 8 oz glass of water approximately 15,000 times for the same cost as a six-pack of soda.

If every household in America had a faucet that dripped once each second, 928 million gallons of water a day would leak away.

A dairy cow must drink four gallons of water to produce one gallon of milk.

Nearly 97 percent of all the world’s water is salty or otherwise undrinkable.
