Water Facts

Did you know…

There are 7.48 gallons in one cubic foot.

A gallon of water weighs 8.34 pounds.

globeWater is the only substance found on earth naturally in three forms: liquid, gas and solid.

Eighty (80) percent of the earth’s surface is water. Water cannot only be found on the surface, but also in the ground and in the air.

There is the same amount of water on earth today as there was when the earth was formed. The water from your faucet could contain molecules that dinosaurs drank.

Water regulates the earth’s temperature, acting as a natural insulator.

Your human body is 70% water. Water regulates the temperature of your body, carries nutrients and oxygen to cells, cushions your joints, protects your organs and tissues and removes waste.

h2oWater is composed of two elements: Hydrogen and Oxygen. A water molecule has three atoms: two hydrogen (H) atoms and one oxygen (O) atom. H2O

All living things need water to live.

Even though water is the single most important and most used commodity in our daily lives, and a person could only survive for a few days without water, we continue to pollute our water at a faster rate than the natural processes can cleanse it.

We drink very little of our drinking water.

Two thirds of the water used in a home is used in the bathroom. Nearly 40% gets flushed down toilets; more than 30% is used in showers and baths.

It takes 2 gallons to brush your teeth, 2 to 7 gallons to flush a toilet and 25 to 50 gallons of water in a five-minute shower. For ideas on how to conserve water, check out our conservation tips.

You can drink more than 4,000 glasses of tap water for the price of a 6-pack of soda.

It takes 1,500 gallons of water to produce a hamburger, fries and soft drink.
