Leave it to the EPA to decide how long is “too long” for a person to take a shower. Unless you’re one of those people who takes a shower once a month whether you need to or not, the EPA thinks you should cut down your shower time by at least a minute. Apparently, this is such a big deal that they’ve done studies to find out how long the average shower is. It’s 8.2 minutes. So, they don’t want anyone taking any showers longer than 7 minutes. Any longer, and you’d be wasting water.
The EPA even wants hotels to monitor their guests’ shower time:

The agency is spending $15,000 to create a wireless system that will track how much water a hotel guest uses to get them to “modify their behavior.”
