We think of our region as having a very large supply of water, especially during those rainy winter days! Unfortunately, Canadians have developed a lifestyle where we use large amounts of water every day.
On average, each person in BC uses enough water to fill a large soaker tub; every day! Adding up all the water that's used for our showers, dishwashers, lawns and laundry means that each of us uses about 490 litres per day.
