      Water resources and water use. Australia is the driest inhabited continent on Earth, and among the world's highest consumers of water. Amongst OECD nations Australia is ranked fourth-highest in water use per capita. Total water runoff in –05 was estimated at billion cubic meters (BCM) and total groundwater recharge was estimated at 49 BCM, giving a total inflow to Australia's water Average residential water use (l/p/d): liter/person/day (). Aquatic plants are plants that have adapted to living in aquatic environments (saltwater or freshwater).They are also referred to as hydrophytes or macrophytes to distinguish them from algae and other microphytes.
