70 Gallons of Water on the Lawn

Number Crunch
The average american home uses 320 gallons of water a day.
Approximately 30 % of that is outdoor water usage. ( 96 gallons)
More than 50% of that outdoor water usage is for watering lawns or gardens.( <48 gallons)
As much as 50% of that water is wasted from inefficient watering methods. (<24 gallons)

Nationwide, landscape irrigation is estimated to account for nearly one-third of all 
residential water use, totaling nearly 9 billion gallons per day.
