WATER USE: rate of 40 gallons / sol today. Trend since mission start of 33 gal/day means we will run out of water 2 days prior to mission end. This means, if we continue with this trend, the tank will be at 54 gallons when the mission ends (that’s 63 gallons short).
In the past 2 days, we consumed more water than normal. Unclogging the sink contributed to this increased water usage.
