Water use in the U.S., 2015

How do we use water in the U.S.?

We all depend on water every day, ranging from the water from our faucets, to the food we eat, to much of the electricity we use. The U.S. and its territories used nearly 322 billion gallons of water per day in 2015. This would cover the continental U.S. in about two inches of water over the course of a year. The national breakdown of...

MODFLOW-NWT model used to simulate groundwater storage changes in the Quincy Basin, Washington

A three-dimensional, groundwater flow model (MODFLOW-NWT) was developed to
examine groundwater storage changes in the Quincy Basin, Washington. The
model was calibrated to conditions from 1920 to 2013. The model was used to
(1) determine the change in groundwater storage from 1920 to 2013 , and
(2) simulate the potential effects of increases in pumping.
