People in the UK use between 124 and 177 litres of water a day, making the average 151 litres per person per day.

Note: p120 for table of water use and maps of household water use.

Rainfall over England and Wales varies, as does water stress. Areas with high water stress are known as areas of deficit and areas with low water stress are called areas of surplus.

Areas with highest demand for water such as the London Basin usually are areas of deficit because of the higher population count.
