Additional Physical Format: Online version: Lane, R.C. (Ronald C.), Estimated domestic, irrigation, and industrial water use in Washington, Since , the U.S. Geological Survey has published a series of Circulars and other reports on the estimated use of water in the United States at 5-year intervals. This report presents State, regional, and county estimates of the amount of water used for domestic, irrigation, and industrial purposes in the State of Washington during the year Get this from a library! Estimated domestic, irrigation, and industrial water use in Washington, [R C Lane; Geological Survey (U.S.)]. Nationwide Water-Use Data? Water­use estimates are published in USGS Circular , “Estimated use of water in the United States in ” Every 5 years, the USGS compiles water­use information in cooperation with State, Federal, and local agencies to document how the Nation’s water resources are used. Circular is the.

This report presents state and county estimates of self-supplied and public domestic water use, as well as irrigation, livestock, aquaculture, industrial, and mining water use in Washington in File Size: 2MB. Estimates of industrial water use in the United States were largest during the years from to , but during , estimates were at the lowest level since reporting began in Combined withdrawals for self-supplied domestic, livestock, aquaculture, and mining were less than 13 Bgal/d for , and represented about 3 percent of total. Levels of water use vary significantly across the world. The visualization shows the average level of water withdrawal per capita per year. As described in detail in our Data Quality & Definitions section, water withdrawal is defined as the quantity of freshwater taken from groundwater or surface water sources (such as lakes or rivers) for use in agricultural, industrial or domestic : Hannah Ritchie, Max Roser.

The Excel spreadsheet programs below are part of the WA State Supplement to Chapter 10 of the WA Irrigation Guide.   Agriculture is a major user of ground and surface water in the United States, accounting for approximately 80 percent of the Nation's consumptive water use and over 90 percent in many Western States. Efficient irrigation systems and water management practices can help maintain farm profitability in an era of increasingly limited and more costly water supplies. The Federal Building Metering Guidance specifies buildings with water using processes and whole building water consumption that exceeds 1, gallons per day must have a water meter installed. Below are methods for estimating daily water use for typical end .
