Water use by state

The Massachusetts DEP historically wanted us to use 60 gallons per person per day or less, and we are above that when we water grass in the summer.

It is instructive to see how water usage varies by states, with California and Texas being really high.  If it was just irrigation in hot climates, I would have expected Florida to be equally as high, but it is not.  Perhaps it is related to agricultural uses.
