Water use

Water abstraction tends to increase or decrease due to a variety of factors such as population and economic growth, or climate indicators like drought. New Zealand and the United States are two of the largest per capita consumers of water in the world. Water consumption can be broken down into several main sectors. Domestic and household water prices tend to be higher than that of the commercial and industrial sectors, and that of irrigation and agricultural uses. Many countries do not apply a fee on taking water directly from public water resources like lakes, rivers, and aquifers. Other countries charge for water abstraction by the volume, typically for industries, utilities, and farmers.
