Industrial Water Use, the USGS Water Science School

Industrial Water Use, the USGS Water Science School | APES | Scoop.it

Industrial water use in the United States. Basic information about Industrial water use, USGS Water Science for Schools.

 

The picture depicts a paper mill located in St. Marys, Georgia. This picture relates to water use in industry because this factory requires a lot of water in order to function.

 

This was another article based off of a study by the USGS Water Science School. This article was extremely helpful in providing the reader with what industries are using obscene amounts of water. Farming is the leading industry in terms of greatest water consumption. This article also had a US map which ranked states in order of highest water withdrawals. Texas, Louisiana, and Indiana were the three highest.

Water-Fueled Car Too Good To Be True?

Water-Fueled Car Too Good To Be True? | APES | Scoop.it

This is a picture of the water fueled car. Its modern and sleek design was made in Japan.

 

 

The Genepax Water Powered car is a new car that is run using water. Many speculate that this technology is too good to be true. The company has not yet released the technology used to make a car run on water however many think that it takes more than just water to make this car go. An assumption some have made is that this car runs with metal hydrides.

My Scoop on Water Uses in Industry

In the United States, we are more water dependent than most would think. Just to flush a toilet it can take anywhere from 2-5 gallons. Also we rely on water to produce lots of products. Products that require water in order to be produced include anything from paper to burgers.

 

Also the auto industry has been affected by the use of water. It has recently made a revolutionary break-through by using water to power a car. The water-powered car requires clean water to run. It is a cleaner, less-expensive alternative to running a car.

 

However, water uses in the United States could be more affective. Instead of using potable water for tasks that are not potable, such as flushing a toilet or doing laundry, we could use grey water. Grey water is a less pure form of water but is more environmentally friendly because it takes less energy to produce.

Total Water Use in the United States, 2005. USGS Water Science for Schools.

 

This graphic is comparing the water withdrawals in various states in 2005 including and excluding thermoelectric use using a pie graph.

 

 This article is based on research done by the USGS Water Science School. The main goal of this article is to inform US citizens on how much water we are using. It is also trying to convey to the reader that we use excess water that we don't really need to use. This article was very informative. The graphics that the article used were very useful in helping the reader see how much water we use but also the recent withdrawals.
