the average American uses 176 gallons of water daily,
and this adds up to 3.9 trillion gallons of water consumed in the U.S. every month.
1” of rain on a 2000 sq.ft. roof = 1200 gallons of water
Did you know...
that less than 1% of all the water on Earth is available and safe for human consumption?
Los Angeles average annual rainfall = 15”
...this means around 18,000 gallons flow through that roof every year!
18,000 gallons would be enough water for 900 showers, each lasting 10 minutes
That’s a whole year of showering, twice a day!
and that California is currently in its fifth year of severe drought?
