Text description of figure

Stacked bar chart showing use of water by region.  Key feature is that irrigation is the biggest user in east coast regions with substantial farming and horticulture (Canterbury, Otago, Hawkes Bay, Marlborough). Note that percentages do not always add to 100 per cent because of rounding.
