These datasets present offstream water use estimates from 2010 which are aggregated to the 8-digit (subbasin) and 12-digit (subwatershed) hydrologic unit level for the Delaware River Basin. The data support USGS Scientific Investigations Report 2015-5142.

In 2015, the total amount of water withdrawn for recreational-landscape irrigation uses in Florida was estimated at 398 million gallons per day (Mgal/d).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 Fresh surface water accounted for 216 Mgal/d of the fresh water withdrawn while 182 Mgal/d was withdrawn from fresh groundwater sources.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...

Note: This data release has been revised. Find version 2.0 here: https://doi.org/10.5066/F75H7FH3. Groundwater withdrawal estimates from 1913-2010 for the Death Valley regional groundwater flow system (DVRFS) are compiled in a Microsoft® Access database. This database updates two previously published databases (Moreo and others, 2003; Moreo and Justet, 2008). A total of about 38,000 acre-feet of groundwater was withdrawn from the DVRFS in 2010, of which 47 percent was used for irrigation, 22 percent for domestic, and 31 percent for public supply, commercial, and mining activities. The updated database was compiled to support ongoing efforts to model groundwater flow in the DVRFS. References cited: Moreo, M.T.,...

In 2015, the total amount of water withdrawn for public supply in Florida was estimated at 2,385 million gallons per day (Mgal/d). Water withdrawals include 2,215 Mgal/d of fresh water and 170 Mgal/d of saline water. Fresh groundwater accounted for 1,909 Mgal/d of the water withdrawn and 169 Mgal/d of the saline groundwater withdrawn for public supply. Miami-Dade County accounted for the largest amount of fresh groundwater withdrawn (339 Mgal/d), Hillsborough County accounted for the largest amount of fresh surface water withdrawn (135 Mgal/d) and all of the saline surface water withdrawn (1 Mgal/d), and Lee County accounted for the largest amount of saline groundwater withdrawn (28 Mgal/d).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...
Every five years since 1950, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Water Use Information Program (NWUIP) has compiled water use information in the United States and published a circular report titled "Estimated use of water in the United States", that includes estimates of water withdrawals by State, sources of water withdrawals (groundwater or surface water), and water use category (irrigation, public supply, industrial, thermoelectric, etc.). This report discusses the impact of important considerations when estimating irrigated acreage and irrigation withdrawals, including estimates of conveyance loss, irrigation system efficiencies, pasture, horticulture, golf courses, and double cropping.

Public-supply water withdrawals in Puerto Rico have been compiled annually since 2014 as part of an ongoing effort between the Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority and the U.S Geological Survey. In 2020, the total amount of public-supply water withdrawn in Puerto Rico was estimated at 602 million gallons per day (Mgal/d) from freshwater sources. Surface-water withdrawals accounted for 537 Mgal/d (89 percent) and groundwater withdrawals accounted for 65 Mgal/d (11 percent). Population served by public-supply water systems accounted for 3.3 million people, almost 100 percent of the total population. Public-supply water withdrawals were tabulated by municipality and by public water system.

This data release consists of Microsoft Excel workbooks related to a cooperative project between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority (PRASA) to estimate public-supply water withdrawals for the year 2019. Daily raw-water inflow volume to each PRASA water-treatment plant and water pumped from PRASA public-supply wells on the island in 2019, as well as coordinate information for these facilities were provided by PRASA. The raw data are not publicly available owing to restrictions (sensitivity concern). Contact PRASA directly for more information. Per capita water use derived from domestic-delivery data for 2016 was used to estimate withdrawals from non-PRASA community...

The Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009 (Public Law 111-11) was passed into law on March 30, 2009. Sub-title F of the law, also known as the SECURE (Science and Engineering to Comprehensively Understand and Responsibly Enhance) Water Act, calls for the establishment of a “national water availability and use assessment program” in the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The recommendation for a national assessment of the available water resources was driven by the lack of such an assessment since 1978. In fulfillment of the Act, the USGS developed the National Water Census (NWC), under the auspices of the USGS Water Availability and Use Program, and as part of that activity, among others, collected water withdrawal...

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...

The U.S. Geological Survey estimates annual public-supply water withdrawn from freshwater sources in Puerto Rico using data obtained from various agencies on the island, including the Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority (PRASA), and the Puerto Rico Department of Health (PRDOH). Public-supply withdrawals from surface and groundwater sources are tabulated by municipality, and by PRASA water service area or public water supply system. When supporting information is available, the USGS also tabulates annual domestic water use for users supplied by public systems such as PRASA and non-PRASA community water systems which are certified by PRDOH. Domestic water use includes indoor and outdoor uses at residences....

Public-supply water withdrawals in Puerto Rico have been compiled annually since 2014 as part of an ongoing effort between the Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority and the U.S Geological Survey. In 2017, the total amount of public-supply water withdrawn in Puerto Rico was estimated at 545 million gallons per day (Mgal/d) from freshwater sources. Surface-water withdrawals accounted for 488 Mgal/d (90 percent) and groundwater withdrawals accounted for 57 Mgal/d (10 percent). Population served by public-supply water systems accounted for 3.5 million people, almost 100 percent of the total population. Public-supply water withdrawals were tabulated by municipality and by public water system.

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).
