Task 1 (Graph) - The charts below show the residential water use in 1988 and 2008. Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features and make comparisons where relevant.


The pie charts given show the changes in the amount of residential water consumption for different purposes during 1988 and 2008.

Overall, the water consumed in households for all purposes showed a decline except in bathroom and kitchen where its usage inclined. The amount of water consumption for washing was the highest in the initial period, but by the end of the period it was in kitchen.

In 1988, maximum usage of water in households  was for washing purpose wherein 25% of water was consumed. But this consumption rate showed a marginal decline in 2008 to 22%.  The utilisation of water in toilets was lower than that of  the washing purpose which accounted for 18% in 1988, which later declined by 4% in 2008.  The water consumption rate in garden dropped remarkably to 7% in 2008 from 20% in 1988.

Just over a fifth of the water was used in the bathroon in 1988 and it rose moderately to 28% in 2008. The least water usage in 1988 was in kitchen(15%) which nearly doubled in 2008 and accounted for the highest water consumption in the same period.
