Longer showers boost water use

The daily water consumption of the average Dutchman has risen by almost four litres to 127.5 litres since in 2004, according to a survey by research agency TNS-NIPO.

The reason for the increase is that young people shower longer and more frequently than a few years ago. But baths are only taken once in 20 days, says TNS-NIPO.
