So, as you may very well be aware, we here in Raleigh are in the midst of the worse drought in recorded history. Since I grew up in the desert, it doesn't really feel all that drought-y (drought-ish?) but I suppose it's not so much what you got, but what you are used to having.
Anyway, the mayor today proposed the possibility of daily consumption limits per person. We are still in the planning stages, but the reality of a 25 gallon per person, per day limit is very very real.
It got me thinking. How much water do I use in a day? Thanks to the series of tubes we know as the internets I got a rough idea. I calculated it using this
Looks like I am at 45 gallons, about 30 less than your average consumer. (this is probably because we can't water our lawn and I haven't washed the outside of my car... ever.
Anyway, I'm guessing little man is gonna consume some serious gallonage with all the bottle and clothes washing. Looks like we will have to find some other ways to conserve water.
