  • Water Use in the USA
    Between 1950 and 2000, the U.S. population nearly doubled. However, in that same period, public demand for water more than tripled! Americans now use an average of 100 gallons of water each day—enough to fill 1,600 drinking glasses.

    We can help you plan your building so that it will be efficient in water consumption.
