Maximum inundation limits resulting from hypothetical dam failure of the Lago El Guineo Dam, Orocovis, Puerto Rico, under a 24-hour 100-year recurrence rainfall event- polygon shapefile

The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority, completed a hydrologic and hydraulic analysis to assess the potential hazard to human life and property associated with the hypothetical failure of the Lago El Guineo Dam. The Lago El Guineo Dam is within the headwaters of the Río Grande de Manatí and impounds a drainage area of about 4.25 squa

Table 1 - Inventoried irrigated acreage summarized by crop and county in the Suwannee River Water Management District, 2015

To accurately estimate agricultural water use or to project future water demands, a detailed inventory of current irrigated crop acreage is needed at a high level of resolution. In many Florida counties this kind of detailed high-resolution inventory is not available. A detailed digital map and summary of irrigated acreage during the 2015 growing season was developed for 13 of the 15 counties...
