Historical Water-Use in Florida

Science Center Objects

The Florida Water-Use Program is an ongoing cooperative project between the United States Geological Survey (USGS), Caribbean-Florida Water Science Center and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS), Office of Agricultural Water Policy (http://www.freshfromflorida.com/Divisions-Offices/Agricultural-Water-Policy). This ongoing cooperative project began in Florida in 1984 in partnership with various state agencies; prior to 1984, the USGS independently collected and published statewide inventories of water-use data at 5-year intervals beginning in 1970. The data needed for these compilations is provided primarily by the five water management districts. These 5-year compilation efforts provide water-use data by major water-use category, county, water source (including aquifer), and water management district. Data for Florida obtained through the Florida Water-Use Program is provided to the USGS National Water-Use Program and used in the compilation of water use for the entire United States, which is also published every five years.
