Water for life

Did you know?Image of flower and its different parts

People could not live without water - we need it to drink, to cook with and to wash ourselves.

The average person in the UK uses 150 litres of water a day. This takes into account cooking, cleaning, washing and flushing.

The human body is made up of two thirds water and without water we would die.

A person could live for weeks without food but only about one week without water.

Every living plant or animal needs water to live and grow.
