Abstract

Estimates of water use in North Dakota have been compiled by the U.S. Geological Survey every 5 years since 1950.  These estimates have been published in national summaries of water use (MacKichan, 1951, 1957; MacKichan and Kammerer, 1961; Murray, 1968; Murrary and Reeves, 1972, 1977; and Solley and others, 1983, 1987).  In this report, estimates of offstream water use for 1985 and trends in water use in 5-year increments from 1960 through 1985 are presented for the following categories of use:

  • Public supply
  • Domestic and commercial
  • Industrial and mining
  • Thermoelectric power
  • Agricultural (irrigation and nonirrigation)
