Ways I Use Water

Try to record how you and your family use water during one 24 hour day. Try to include the ways that water is being used. Make a chart like the one below to write down your uses. A few examples are given to help you get started.


Location of Water Used Water used for ? Estimate how much ?
Bathroom shower 50 gal. for each 10 minute shower
Bathroom flush toilet 6 gal. for each flush
Kitchen cooking breakfast - making coffee 1 gal.

Compare your list with those of classmates. How many of the ways you listed were the same? How many different uses of water were there?


You can also try using the online water use calculator. See what your results are using it.
