3.9 BILLION cubic feet of water. There are 7.48 gallons in cubic foot and 748 gallons in one hundred (100) cubic feet (hcf). In order to express large volumes of water use, this water use is expressed in acre feet numbers. One acre foot equals 43,560 cubic feet or 435.6 hundred cubic feet and is equivalent to 325,851 gallons.

3,951,893,143 ft³= 29,562,213,144 US gal. 30 BILLION GALLONS!

Thanks, now you got me thinking. I'll have something to bring up for discussion at the Super Bowl pre-party.
