Basic consumption

I read that the average American uses 100 gallons of water a day. Our home usage for the last twelve months was 18,100 gallons, which comes to just under 50 gallons a day for two people.

Blimey! I was just looking at the RIOT website and they want all usage cut by 90%. That means only 10 gallons of water per person each day.... would I really want my co-workers to stop showering so they have water to do the laundry???
