Abstract

This report contains statistical information relating to water use in Arkansas. The principle categories of water use, other than hydroelectric energy generation, are public supply, self-supplied industrial use, rural domestic and livestock use, irrigation, fish and minnow farming, water for wild life impoundments, and thermoelectric-energy generation. About half the total or 2,440 Mgal/d was used for irrigation, and of that 86 percent was ground water. A little more than half the water used in the state was ground water; streams and reservoirs supplied the rest.
