    I like the interactive nature of the infographic, but as an engineer whose focus is on water and wastewater treatment issues, some of the data appears to be off. Many of these numbers are on the high side, and to state that the average person uses nearly 2,000 gallons of water a day is misleading. The number is closer to 1,300 gallons per day for all uses. I work on a daily basis to help companies, cities and individuals decrease their water footprint. I however, get frustrated when people manipulate information to scare people or work towards a specific agenda.
