In wastewater and water treatment, we call 1 gallon of water 8.34 pounds and say 1 cubic foot is 7.48 gallons. We use these values for various calculations ranging well into millions of gallons. Those numbers are so well accepted that they are on the D, C, B, and A license tests.
I'm an Op II with a C in wastewater.

In the metric system, 1 litre of water weighs exactly 1 kilogram for all practical purposes.
