According to studies conducted by the USGS Water Science School in 2005, the current approximate total water usage by the US is estimated at 410,000,000 Gallons per year.
A new series of informative articles by Sureaqua, portable water filter company, plans to unveil America's biggest users of water are in an attempt to gauge just how reliant the economy is on this precious resource.
"With so much hype in media over the commoditization of water and dwindling supplies, we wanted to look into which industries use the most water, what role they plays in the daily operations of our economy; exploring the concept of the economy yet again being based on a resource that can, will, and is depleting," said Roberto Domanko, Founder and Director of Sureaqua.
As outlined in part one of this series, Water and the Economy: How Water Fuels Your World, Sureaqua attempt to gauge the economic importance of water, based on the total GDP from five of the United States of America's most consumptive industries being: Thermoelectric power, Public Supply, Industrial Use, Irrigation, and Aquaculture.
The articles have been said to outline the uses and contributions of each industry, identifying positive and harmful aspects. The series will then move on to discuss how human neglect of environmental factors has adversely effected future water sources.
"Through the Sureaqua blog, we try to touch on relevant issues, which we all face today. If one person is enlightened by the research and facts presented then we've done our job," continued Mr. Domanko.
