Water Use, Mapped

Americans are getting better at conserving water, according to a U.S. Geological Survey report released this month. The Washington Post reportedthat per capita domestic water use has plummeted from 112 gallons per day in 1980 to just 82 gallons in 2015, a 27 percent decrease. The map above from Data Is Beautiful on Reddit shows how different regional uses compare by county, with thermoelectric power, irrigation, public water supply, and industrial uses.
