The SARP Flow Alteration Assessment provides a regional characterization of the distribution and risk of flow regime impairment of streams and rivers by anthropogenic sources at the NHD+ segment scale. This map illustrates the cumulative risk of flow alteration (RFA) from surface water use for thermopower generation in Oklahoma.  Water use is based on state permits for surface water withdrawals and returns.  The risk is based on the volume of water used monthly in the drainage area relative to the monthly volume of flow.  Risk of Flow Alteration categories:  ZERO     - 0% mean monthly flow depletion,  LOW      - > 0-10%,  MEDIUM - > 10-20%,  HIGH      - >20-100%, and  PROVISIONAL...

Total water demand (gallons per day per acre) summarized to 12-digit HUC watersheds was derived from EnviroAtlas agricultural, domestic, industrial, and thermoelectric water demand datasets.Information about the original EPA data is as follows:Agricultural water demand:The EnviroAtlas national water demand metric provides insight into the amount of water currently used for agricultural irrigation in the contiguous United States. The values are based on 2005 irrigation water use; combined 2010 crop, 2006 land use, and 2001 remotely sensed irrigation location estimates; and have been summarized by watershed or 12-digit hydrologic unit code (HUC). Agricultural irrigation water use, as defined in this case, meets a...
This project has developed models based on heat budgets to estimate water use for electrical generation, and produced estimated thermoelectric withdrawal and consumption at the level of individual plants for 2010. Refinement of these methods is ongoing.
