Pre-AP Spanish 3 and AP Spanish are working on a unit entitled “Water is Life”. In order to help track our daily water usage, I gave them this information from http://www.alternet.org

Bath 40 gallons
5-minute shower 10 gallons
5-minute power shower 20 gallons
Brushing teeth with tap running 2 gallons/min
Brushing teeth with tap off .25 gallon
One toilet flush 3 gallons
Other water use (drinking, cooking, etc.) 7 gallons
Washing machine 40 gallons
Dishwasher 10 gallons
Washing car with bucket 3 gallons
Hose/sprinkler 140 gallons/hour

How much water do you use in a day?
