Freshwater withdrawals in Texas, 1985

Water-Resources Investigations Report 89-4044
By:  and 



Since 1950, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has estimated water use in the United States at 5-year intervals.  Resulting reports tabulate water use by State and by water-resources region (major river basins) for a number of categories, such as irrigation, water supply, and industrial.  In 1977, the USGS began the National Water-Use Information Program, designed to be a National source of accurate, consistent water-use data.  The water-use project in Texas is part of the National Water-Use Information Program.  The Texas District of the USGS compiles water-use information by county and by hydrologic unit using data collected by States agencies.  A hydrologic unit is a geographic area representing part or all of a surface drainage basin, a combination of drainage basins, or a distinct hydrologic feature.
