The largest use of water in the US is for power producing plants as thermoelectric energy. Water will often be used to cool the electric equipment, and then it is sprayed into towers where it can evaporate because it is too hot to return to lakes and rivers. This type of water usage amounts to 49% of American’s water usage in a given year. The second largest use of water is agriculture, which takes 31% of our water. The hottest places use the most water for agriculture, such as Imperial Valley, CA. Imperial Valley uses 3/4 of California’s water for maintaining agriculture in a desert. Therefore, the day which uses the most water in the US is the hottest day, and even more importantly, the day which American’s use the most electricity. Perhaps the Super Bowl?
