  • Research estimates footprint of U.S. economy in water usage

    Did you know manufacturing a dollar’s worth of dog food requires the use of approximately 200 gallons of water? Other industrial processes — such as egg production, electricity generation, and many types of farming — are even more costly in water use per dollar. For example, for one dollar’s worth of output from grain farming, approximately 1,400 gallons of water are used.
