The USGS Water Science School
This section of the Water Science site is about how we use water on an everyday basis. After all, when it comes down to it, how we use water is what is really important to the average person.
All 2010 water-use information is from the report Estimated use of water in the United States in 2010.
Data is available for 2010 on our National Water Use home page.
