At the beginning of every line of data in the water-use data files (refer to the water-use data dictionary) there is a code specifying what 'area' the data is for. These 'FIPS' codes will tell you, for example, that the data is for county 031 in Georgia. The files below are lists of the FIPS codes and the corresponding names.
