The U.S. Geological Survey's National Water-Use Science Project (formerly the National Water-Use Information Program) is responsible for compiling and disseminating the nation's water-use data. Established by USGS in 1978, the USGS National Water-Use Science Project built on the legacy of the Estimated Use of Water in the United States report series, begun in 1950 and produced every 5 years.
The National Water-Use Science Project is a part of the National Water Census (NWC), which supports research focused on improving methods of collection and estimation of water-use data. Water use is a key component of the water-budget approach of the NWC.
Goals of the National Water Use Science Project:
A number of guidelines and methods reports are available for the USGS water-use compilations and related work, both for specific categories of water use and for more recent compilations as a whole.
Below are related water-use topics.
