“The average daily water consumption across the south east in November 2014 was 190 litres per person per day. This is a stark contrast to consumption levels before the millennium drought, when the region’s residents were using an average of 330 litres per person per day.”
That’s Queensland, Australia. To translate to U.S. measures, that’s down from 87 gallons per person per day to about 50. By comparison, Albuquerque (which I frequently cite as a success story) is currently at about 135 gallons per person per day, down from some 250 in the mid-1990s.
We can do this.
