The tourism industry is largely dependent on water. Accommodation providers, in particular, depend on large quantities of water to run showers, swimming pools, irrigation systems and so on. Consequently, a medium to large hotel in Australia, for example, uses around 79,000 litres per day, equating roughly to the same amount of water needed to fill 29 Olympic-sized pools each year.
