This community serves to document data and analysis collected by researchers within the Upper Midwest Water Science Center whose mission is to collect high-quality hydrologic data and conduct unbiased, scientifically sound studies of water resources within the Great Lakes and Upper Mississippi Basins. We strive to meet the changing needs of those who use our information—from the distribution, availability, and quality of our water resources to topic-oriented research that addresses current hydrological issues.

In 2015, the total amount of water withdrawn for recreational-landscape irrigation uses in Florida was estimated at 398 million gallons per day (Mgal/d). Withdrawals include water used for golf course and public and commercial landscape irrigation (parks, ball fields, highway medians, cemeteries, and other large-scale grass or landscaping areas) that have a consumptive water use permit from the local water management district specifically for golf course or landscape uses. This category does not include individual household lawn irrigation withdrawals. Fresh surface water accounted for 216 Mgal/d of the fresh water withdrawn while 182 Mgal/d was withdrawn from fresh groundwater sources. Palm Beach County accounted...

Fresh groundwater accounted for 1,909 Mgal/d of the water withdrawn and 169 Mgal/d of the saline groundwater withdrawn for public supply. Miami-Dade County accounted for the largest amount of fresh groundwater withdrawn (339 Mgal/d), Hillsborough County accounted for the largest amount of fresh surface water withdrawn (135 Mgal/d) and all of the saline surface water withdrawn (1 Mgal/d), and Lee County accounted for the largest amount of saline groundwater withdrawn (28 Mgal/d). All of the saline water...

In 2016, the total amount of public-supply water withdrawn in Puerto Rico was estimated at 551 million gallons per day (Mgal/d) from fresh water sources. Surface water accounted for 492 Mgal/d (89 percent) and groundwater accounted for 59 Mgal/d (11 percent). Population served by public-supply water systems accounted for 3.4 million people, almost 100 percent of the total population. Total domestic water use was estimated at 396 Mgal/d and it is represented as the summation of deliveries from public-supply water systems to domestic users and self-supplied domestic withdrawals. The average per capita domestic water use, which represents the daily water use for the population that is supplied by public-supply water...

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. Water for public supply accounted for the majority of fresh water withdrawn (2,215 Mgal/d) followed closely by agricultural self-supplied (2,089 Mgal/d) for 2015. The remaining fresh water was withdrawn for power generation (434 Mgal/d), commercial-industrial-mining self-supplied (409 Mgal/d), recreational-landscape irrigation (397 Mgal/d), and domestic self-supplied (177 Mgal/d). Water withdrawn for power generation accounted for the majority of saline water withdrawn (9,425 Mgal/d) for 2015, followed by public supply (170...

In 2015, the total amount of water withdrawn for power generation uses in Florida was estimated at 9,859 million gallons per day (Mgal/d). Withdrawals include water used for once-through cooling, cooling pond augmentation, boiler make-up, and domestic uses at power facilities. Saline water accounted for 9,425 Mgal/d of the water withdrawn for power generation, while fresh water accounted for 434 Mgal/d of the water withdrawn for this category. Of the saline water, 9,396 Mgal/d was withdrawn from surface water sources and 29 Mgal/d was withdrawn from groundwater sources. Of the fresh water, 406 Mgal/d was withdrawn from surface water sources and 28 Mgal/d was withdrawn from groundwater sources. Pasco County accounted...

In 2015, the total amount of water withdrawn for agricultural irrigation uses in Florida was estimated at 2,089 million gallons per day (Mgal/d). Withdrawals include water used for crop irrigation, freeze protection, livestock needs, and fish farming (aquaculture). Fresh surface water accounted for 1,078 Mgal/d of the fresh water withdrawn and1,011 Mgal/d was withdrawn from fresh groundwater sources. Palm Beach County accounted for the largest amount of fresh surface water withdrawn (513 Mgal/d), followed by Hendry County (257 Mgal/d), while Hendry County accounted for the largest amount of fresh groundwater withdrawn (123 Mgal/d) followed by Collier County (97 Mgal/d).

Florida’s water resources have been managed by five water management districts since 1972. These five regional water management districts are the Northwest Florida, St Johns River, South Florida, Southwest Florida, and the Suwannee River. In 2015, the Southwest Florida Water Management District accounted for the largest amount of saline water withdrawn (5,135 Mgal/d) and the South Florida Water Management District accounted for the largest amount of fresh water withdrawn (2,792 Mgal/d). The South Florida Water Management District accounted for the largest amount of water withdrawn for public supply (1,118 Mgal/d), agricultural irrigation (1,380 Mgal/d), and recreation-landscape irrigation (263 Mgal/d), while the...

This dataset contains water-use estimates for 2015 that are aggregated to the county level in the United States. The U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS's) National Water Use Science Project is responsible for compiling and disseminating the Nation's water-use data. Working in cooperation with local, State, and Federal agencies, the USGS has published an estimate of water use in the United States every 5 years, beginning in 1950. Water-use estimates aggregated to the State level are presented in USGS Circular 1441, "Estimated Use of Water in the United States in 2015" (Dieter and others, 2018). This dataset contains the county-level water-use data that support the state-level estimates in Dieter and others 2018. This...

In 2015, the total amount of water withdrawn for domestic self-supplied in Florida was estimated at 177 million gallons per day (Mgal/d). All of this water is from fresh groundwater sources. Duval County accounted for the largest amount of fresh groundwater withdrawn (13 Mgal/d) followed by Marion County (12 Mgal/d) and Lee County (11 Mgal/d). This category includes water withdrawn by households with a private well for drinking water purposes, but does not include water withdrawn from private wells used solely for lawn irrigation purposes.
