Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
So much good material on that blog. Quoted again by the author from another article in the AJC:

Government agencies, however, have calculated that thermoelectric plants with once-through cooling use an average of 25 gallons of water to produce one kilowatt hour of power. The average Georgia household burns 1,100 kilowatt hours of electricity a month. That translates to about 27,000 gallons of water. By comparison, a family of four goes through about 9,000 gallons a month for household uses such as washing clothes, flushing toilets and showering.

Peak everything indeed.
