No. 3 in 2010, Robert W. Girling takes the top spot this year, consuming nearly two million gallons of water. The Girling maid said the family had no comment about it, when asked.

Another repeat customer on the list is Congressman Michael McCaul. He comes in sixth, using 1.4 million gallons. His office said they are looking into underground irregularities because a number of top users live in close proximity. When McCaul came in the top 10 users last year, his office blamed an underground leak.

Cycling champ Lance Armstrong comes in eighth on the list, four spots higher than former University of Texas Longhorns running back Cedric Benson, who used nearly 1.3 million gallons.
