The top five highest water consumers in the United States have been identified in a new series from SureAqua.
July 8, 2013 -- The top five highest water consumers in the United States have been identified in a series, "Water and the Economy: How Water Fuels Your World," by SureAqua, a portable water filter company, in an endeavor to identify the role that water plays in the U.S. economy.
According to the series, the total water usage by the United States of America is 410,000 million gallons per day.
"When we looked into it, we found that the most consumptive industries were the Thermoelectric Power, Public Supply, Industrial Use, Irrigation, and Aquaculture industries, allotting to a combined consumption of 400,450 million gallons per day," commented Robert Domanko, Founder and Director of SureAqua.
From there the articles aimed to outline the economical significance of these findings by identifying how many jobs were created in these industries and how this translated into a national, financial benefit in terms of revenue and employee payrolls.
The last of the big five were analyzed in the latest part of the series, "Water and the Economy: Industrial Use, Irrigation and Aquaculture," which pointed out that these three consumed a total of 154,980 million gallons per day, generating over 115,502,200 jobs for Americans.
"With this new knowledge or outlook on the importance of water in the United States Economy, we will now be looking into the risks that this essential natural resource faces. Our supplies are under more pressures than ever, and it has never been more vital to draw attention to this and educate citizens on these matters," continued Mr. Domanko.
