Did you know?
The average person uses 230 litres of water a day.
A dripping faucet leaking one drop per second can amount to 25 litres per day or more than 10,000 litres per year. That's enough water to: wash more than 65 loads of clothing, have 140 five minute showers, or wash 40 cars. (Alberta Water for Life)
Studies have shown that our household water use could be reduced by 50 per cent without significantly changing our lifestyle (Alberta Water for Life)
Expressed another way, if all the earth's water were stored in a 5-litre container, available fresh water would not quite fill a teaspoon. (Environment Canada)
