Efficiencies of water use development
Authors: Mcandrews, C. J.
Description: Resource utilization is being emphasized by a people with an affinity for waste. Water is a priority item on the list of resources. It is mis-used, mis-understood, and at the same time appreciated. Co-ordinated knowledge related to water use and development may be gained by reviewing the many disciplines of study in the hydrologic cycle. Man and water are inseparable. Each human being consists 70% of water. Without water death ensues in seven to ten days (2). To maintain health, inside and out, the North American human uses 125 Imperial gallons of water per day. In addition, his water bill for farming is 625 gallons per day. He also uses manufactured goods each day that require about 500 gallons of water to produce. About 1,250 gallons of water per day or 25,000,000 gallons per life span are used per person.
