This data release comprises nearly three decades of measurements of sandbar topography for monitoring sites along the Colorado River in Grand Canyon National Park and Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. The data were collected to monitor the effects of the operations of Glen Canyon Dam on sandbars, which are also recreational campsites. The data were collected by the US Geological Survey Grand Canyon Monitoring and Research Center in cooperation with Northern Arizona University. Funding for data collection, processing, and reporting has been provided by the Glen Canyon Dam Adaptive Management Program administered by the US Department of the Interior Bureau of Reclamation.

Water Use by Source and Category in Idaho Counties are compiled as part of the "Estimated Use of Water in the United States" series of U.S. Geological Survey Circular reports that have been published every 5 years since 1950 (Maupin and others, 2014). Idaho withdrawals in 2015 are being published as a separate dataset in support of the U.S. Geological Survey fact sheet 2018-3036. Maupin, M.A., Kenny, J.F., Hutson, S.S., Lovelace, J.K., Barber, N.L., and Linsey, K.S., 2014, Estimated use of water in the United States in 2010: U.S. Geological Survey Circular 1405, 56 p., https://doi.org/10.3133/cir1405.

This dataset presents water withdrawal estimates, consumption estimates, and associated information for 1,122 water-using, utility scale thermoelectric power plants in the United States for 2015. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) developed models to estimate thermoelectric water use based on linked heat-and-water budgets, including thermodynamically plausible ranges of minimum and maximum withdrawal and consumption, to provide a consistent method for water-use estimation across the fleet of U.S. thermoelectric plants. Historically, thermoelectric water withdrawal and consumption has been estimated by the Department of Energy's Energy Information Administration (EIA) based on surveys of plant operator-reported data...

This data release is associated with the following Scientific Investigations Report: Root, J.C. and Jones, D.K., 2022, Elevation-area-capacity relationships of Lake Powell in 2018 and estimated loss of storage capacity since 1963: U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Report 2022–5017, 21 p., https://doi.org/10.3133/sir20225017. This dataset provides elevation-area-capacity relationships for Lake Powell derived from a topobathymetric digital elevation model (TBDEM) that was collected in 2017 and 2018. The TBDEM was modified (Jones and Root, 2021, available for download at https://doi.org/10.5066/P9H60YCF) from the originally published version (Poppenga and others, 2020, available for download at https://doi.org/10.5066/P9XX0J1Y)...
