Over Population


Effects of Over Population

With the population of the GTA reaching nearly 10 million people. It puts a threat on the sustainability of the community. Do lack of resources like jobs or water affect this community?


In the year 2014, Lake Ontario provided water to about 49% of all of Ontario and all of the Greater Toronto Area. There were 1,638,095,398,147.5 liters of clean water to support 6,289,000 people living in the GTA. Now the year is 2050, the more dirtied water now needs to support 9,890,000 people living in the GTA with more people to come. To make sure everyone has an adequate amount of water we need to lower the average amount of water used, from 329 liters to about 210 liters per person per day.
