Spatial and tabular datasets of water withdrawals and use in Puerto Rico, 2015

July 8, 2021

The U.S. Geological Survey has compiled information on water withdrawal and use for Puerto Rico at 5-year intervals since 1980 to provide data for the management of the Commonwealth’s water resources. For 2015, water withdrawals and use were estimated for 78 municipalities from fresh groundwater and surface water in the categories of public use, domestic use, irrigation use, livestock, commercial use, industrial use, and mining use and both fresh groundwater and surface water and saline surface-water for thermoelectric power. Fourteen tables and one shapefile were compiled to provide water withdrawals by municipalities and other water use information.
