Estimates of water use in the United States in indicate that an average of about bgd (billion gallons per day)-about 1, gallons per capita per day-was withdrawn. Estimated use of water in the United States in [Washington]: U.S. Dept. of the Interior, Geological Survey, (OCoLC) Material Type: Government publication, National government publication: Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: Charles Richard Murray; E . The United States Geological Survey has compiled data on water use in this country every fifth year since This document is the most recent of this series and presents data on water withdrawn for use in the United States in In the introduction, recent and present water use studies are discussed along with a description of the terminology by: 4.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Murray, Charles Richard, Estimated use of water in the United States in Washington: U.S. Dept. of the Interior, Geological Survey, Year Published: Estimated Use of Water in the United States in Water withdrawals in the United States during were estimated to average , million gallons per day (Mgal/d) of freshwater and saline water for offstream uses percent less than the estimate. In the report, Estimated Use of Water in the United States in , the USGS found that water use remains stable despite population growth, and that the chief water users for the Nation are power generation, agriculture and public water supply. The USGS report also finds that public supply use of water is rising, but not faster than population. Average per capita use for all offstream uses was 2, gpd (gallons per day) of fresh and saline water, and 1, gpd of fresh water; this represents a slight increase since Offstream uses include (1) public supply (domestic, public, commercial, and industrial uses), (2) rural (domestic and livestock uses), (3) irrigation, and (4) self-supplied industrial uses (including thermoelectric power).

Discuss three specific strategies for conserving water in the United States. Since approximately 70% of the water that humans use goes to irrigate agricultural crops, improved technologies that can reduce evaporation and runoff from agricultural lands are essential.
