Abstract

Freshwater withdrawals in Texas during 1990 were estimated as part of the U.S. Geological Survey's National Water Use Information Program. Estimates of freshwater withdrawals were made for five categories of use: irrigation, thermoelectric- power generation, water supply, industrial and mining, and domestic/commercial/livestock. Total freshwater withdrawals for the State were estimated to be 20,100 Mgal/d (million gallons per day). Ground water was estimated to account for 37 percent (7,390 Mgal/d), and surface water was estimated to account for 63 percent (12,700 Mgal/d) of total withdrawals. The largest withdrawals of freshwater were for irrigation purposes.
