The pie charts below compare water usage in San Diego, California and the rest of the world. Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features and making comparisons where relevant.
The diagram reveals information about the main water areas of water consumption in two cities which are Santiago and California, and the rest of the world.
What stood out from the figure is that, in California and Santiago, the majority of the water is used for running industries and residual use. Apparently, water needs for industrial activities are also high in the former city. Whereas, in the remaining part of the world, the agricultural sector took a big water share.
To commence with, residual water utilization is quite high in Santiago; just below 2/3 of water expenditure is for domestic use. Next is supplying for industries; about a quarter of water is used for manufacturing goods. Lastly, the least water requiring sector is Agriculture, slightly lower than 1 in 5th of water is allocated for farming.
In California, like Santiago, water use for household activity is significant, which is more than 1/3 of the total water usage. The Second largest water requiring sector is production and fabrication; again, about 1/3 of water is consumed in this area; it is evident that California is an industrialized state. Finally, just less than 30% per cent of water is awarded for agronomy.
Looking at the details in the rest of the world, unlike the two states, slightly less than ¾ of water is meant for crop production and related agricultural activities, and nearly ¼ will be spent in industries, yet only less than 1 in 10 of water is utilized for residual activities.
To sum up, the majority of countries across the globe use water for agriculture which means the economy will be agriculture-based. On the other hand, in a few cities in Santiago, high consumption of water is for residual activities. And the industrialized city of California industries and residual consumption together took the lion’s share of water utilization.
