One everyday task, such as a standard shower, takes up around 2.5 gallons per minute. The toliet is another everyday task that takes up about 1.5 gallons per minute.
California uses 22% for moving (10,300 GWH), 15% for farm use (7,400 GWH), 28% for househole/residential (13,500 GWH), 18% for commercial (8,700 GWH), 13% for industrial (6,000 GWH), and 4% for wastewaer treatment (2,000 GWH).
The picture to the left shows where California's water mainly goes to.
Our small percentage of fresh water that we can drink comes from our rivers, lakes, reservoirs, and are locked away in glaciers.
The picture to the right explains the distribution of the salt water and fresh water on Earth's surface.
