Water & Energy

Most people don’t realize the considerable amount of energy it takes to deliver and treat the water they use. In fact, American public water supply and treatment facilities consume about 56 billion kilowatt-hours per year – enough electricity to power more than 5 million homes for an entire year.

Leaky Pipes – Factoids

Did you know each day approximately six billion gallons of treated drinking water are “lost” primarily due to system leaks throughout the United States? This is approximately 14% of the nation’s total daily water production. (Reported by American Society of Civil Engineers)

Did you know if every home replaced their old toilet with a new high efficiency toilet, more than 900 billion gallons of water would be saved per year ? enough to supply almost 10 million U.S. households?
