Water Conservation Fixtures
If all U.S. households installed water-saving features, water use would decrease by 30%, saving an estimated 5.4 billion gallons per day. This would result in savings of $11.3 million per day, or more than $4 billion per year. Water-conserving fixtures installed in U.S. households in 1998 alone saved 44 million gallons of water every day, resulting in total dollar-value savings of more than $33.6 million per year.

National Water Use
Approximately 339,000 million gallons per day (MGD) of freshwater (about a quarter of the national renewable supply) were withdrawn during 1990 for use by the nation's homes, farms, and industries. About 220 billion gallons per day were returned to streams after use. The withdrawals during 1990 were about 7% less than during 1980, the maximum year reported, and about the same as during 1985. Some reasons for the decline are:
