Detailed Description

Water use information is collected every 5 years by USGS. This map shows water withdrawals for aquaculture purposes, in 2010, by county, for Georgia.

To get a better idea of what aquaculture water use is, look at our Water Science School site and the National site about Water Use in the United States.

Industrial withdrawals provide water for such purposes as fabricating, processing, washing, diluting, cooling, or transporting a product; incorporating water into a product; or for sanitation needs within the manufacturing facility. Some industries that use large amounts of water produce such commodities as food, paper, chemicals, refined petroleum, or primary metals. Water for industrial use may be delivered from a public supplier or be self supplied.
