Summary

In 2015, the total amount of water withdrawn in Florida was estimated at 15,319 million gallons per day (Mgal/d). This includes 9,598 Mgal/d of saline water and 5,721 Mgal/d of fresh water. Groundwater accounted for 3,604 Mgal/d and surface water accounted for 2,117 Mgal/d of the fresh water withdrawals. Surface water accounted for 9,400 Mgal/d and groundwater 198 Mgal/d of the saline water withdrawals. Water withdrawals are also tabulated by category (public supply, domestic self-supplied, commercial-industrial-mining self-supplied, agricultural irrigation, recreational-landscape irrigation, and power generation) and water management district (Northwest Florida, St Johns River, South Florida, Southwest Florida, and Suwannee River).

Purpose

These tables present water withdrawal totals collected for 2015 as part of an ongoing effort between the State of Florida, the five water management districts, and the U.S Geological Survey (USGS), Caribbean-Florida Water Science Center to collect, compile, and publish water-use data every five years in Florida. This data is also supplied to the USGS National Water-Use Program as part of a similar program to collect, compile, and publish water-use data for the United States every five years. Water-use data has been collected, compiled, and published every five years in Florida beginning in 1970. The 9 tables provide 2015 water withdrawal totals by category, county, water source, and water management district and will be followed by a published water-use report for Florida that will detail collection methodology, data sources, and highlight selected water-use trends between 1970 and 2015.
