1The two pie charts compare the proportions of water consumption for five different sectors in Australia in two years- 1997 and 2007. 2The most salient feature of the graph is the considerably larger amount of water consumed by the food industry in the given years.
3In 1997, the food industry was the biggest consumer of water accounting for roughly half of the total water use. Although this value presented a 7% decline in 2007, this sector was by far the largest consumer of water. Interestingly, the amount of water used for construction purposes respectively comprised values as low as 2% and 7% in 1997 and 2007- making it the smallest consumer of water amongst all sectors.
4As for domestic water use, a slight rise could be observed in the figures for water consumption by households in these years. By contrast, the amount of water used by the manufacturing sector underwent a 4% drop compared to its corresponding value in 1997. The most dramatic change came about in the service industry revealing a surge of roughly 50% in water use- rendering it the second largest sector in this respect.
5By and large, although the figures for water consumption fluctuated across all sectors, food sector remained the leading consumer of water, whereas the building industry retained its position as the sector with the lowest demand for water use.
