19% of electricity consumption in California goes for using water

Graphic by Andy Warner / KQED

KQED links to a 2005 State of California report and has a wonderful and informative infographic about how 19% percent of power in California is involved in using water.

Plus, water is heavily used in generating electricity by steam and also for cooling. Seems a bit of a vicious circle, doesn’t it?
