In 2034, Calgary (a semi-arid region) will max out its water allocation from rivers. City planners say data shows heavy rainfalls & droughts are increasing in frequency. Going forward, wet years will be wetter and dry years will be drier. https://t.co/4MSdJvqjuI
Interesting look at the big USA's water use. "On average, every Americans use about 60 gallons (270L) of water per day for purposes that include flushing toilets, showering and doing laundry. This figure can easily double if outdoor uses (lawns, pools, etc) are also included."
