Mar 31, 2010 (Last modified Feb 16, 2019)
This dataset depicts water use by sector at the county level in the U.S., as estimated by the USGS. Attributes of this dataset describe the use of water by different sectors, including public supply, industry, and irrigation. Care should be exercised when using this dataset. Data for certain attributes were missing; these were coded as the value 0. These 0 values should not be taken to represent that the quantity of water use is indeed 0, but rather that the data were missing from the original dataset.
