This post was originally published on this site

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) recently released a report on the estimated water use in the U.S. USGS releases these reports every five years, and the report and associated maps can be useful when discussion overall water use. The report provides a breakdown of water use by sector (power generation, irrigation, public water supply, etc.) as well as detailed maps on water use by county.
