Downloading 1995 water-use data

Use the table below to download individual 1995 water-use data files. The files are tab-delimited and can be imported into a spreadsheet programs. You will also need to download the data dictionary, which explains the data elements and column headings that are in the data files.

Each line in the data files represents a county or watershed (water-resources cataloging unit (HUC-8)), and there are 248 individual data elements on each line. The approximate size in kilobytes (Kb) is indicated for each file.

The watershed file for the United States as a whole is concatenated from the individual State files. Watersheds that cross State lines will have entries for each State section, which must be added together to determine the total water use for the watershed.
