Definition of Water consumption

Water consumption Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
Wikipedia English - The Free Encyclopedia
Drinking water or potable water is water safe enough to be consumed by humans or used with low risk of immediate or long term harm. In most developed countries, the water supplied to households, commerce and industry meets drinking water standards, even though only a very small proportion is actually consumed or used in food preparation. Typical uses (for other than potable purposes) include toilet flushing, washing, and landscape irrigation. The word potable came into English from the Late Latin potabilis meaning drinkable.
