Assignment 14: Track Your Water
For this assignment, you will track your water usage in all aspects of your life over a 24-hour period. You need to account for every single drop!
- Measuring all the water you drink
- Measuring all the water used when washing dishes
- Measuring all the water used during a shower (measure the time, and then estimate)
- Measuring all the water used for each toilet flush (check on your tank and it tells you)
- Measuring water used while brushing teeth
- Measuring water used for cooking
- And so forth…
You will need to make a table or an Excel spreadsheet that documents each use and the amount of water associated with it. Here is an example:
Example Table Water Use Comments Water used Cooking oatmeal Breakfast 8 ounces / 1 cup Flush toilet (3 times) Used standard 1 gallon/ flush 64 ounces / 1 gallon
By the end of the 24 hours, you will tally up all of the water used. Make sure that your units are standard (either metric or American are OK, just be consistent).
Alongside your table, please submit a short essay (150-200 words) that answers these questions:
- What were your biggest areas of water use?
- What time of day did you use the most water?
- Are there any things you can do to reduce your water use?
