Short summary
Our research examined the sustainability of rural societies based on water usage perspectives which are different from modern societies with pipe borne water. The average daily usage for drinking, cooking, washing, toiletries, and bathing are 3, 5, 10, 7, and 85 liters per person, respectively. Majority of the families use dug wells and pipe-borne water as the primary source. Correlation coefficients suggest that higher household income or level of education leads to increased water consumption.
