Country Overview

1.1.2.WATER USE About 410,000 million gallons per day (Mgal/d) of water was withdrawn for use in the United States during 2005. About 80 per cent of the total (328,000Mgal/d) withdrawal was from surface water, and about 82 per cent of the surface water withdrawn was freshwater. The remaining 20 per cent (82,600Mgal/d) was withdrawn from groundwater, of which about 96 per cent was freshwater. If withdrawals for thermoelectric power in 2005 are excluded, withdrawals were 210,000Mgal/d, of which 129,000Mgal/d (62 per cent) was supplied by surface water and 80,700Mgal/d (38 per cent) was supplied by groundwater. Water withdrawals in four states — California, Texas, Idaho and Florida — accounted for more than a quarter of all fresh and saline water withdrawn in the United States in 2005. More than half (53 per cent) of the total withdrawals of 45,700Mgal/d in California were for irrigation, and 28 per cent were for thermoelectric power. Most of the withdrawals in Texas (26,700Mgal/d) were for thermoelectric power (43 per cent) and irrigation (29 per cent). Irrigation accounted for 85 per cent of the 19,500 Mgal/d of water withdrawn in Idaho, and thermoelectric power accounted for 66 per cent of the 18,300Mgal/d withdrawn in Florida. Public water supply used 43 billion gallons (163 million m3) per day in 2000 serving 242 million people, corresponding to 21 per cent of total water use in the same year. Residential (home) water use accounts for 66 per cent of publicly supplied water in the United States, with the remainder being used by offices, public buildings, businesses and industry that does not have its own water sources. The USGS estimated water use in the US in 2005 per capita for domestic deliveries ranged from 51 gal/d in Maine to 189 gal/d in Nevada. The national average was 99 gal/d for publicsupplied domestic water use. 

1.2.WATER QUALITY, ECOSYSTEMS AND HUMAN HEALTH In an assessment of river quality, states identified 44 per cent of the assessed miles as being impaired or not supporting one or more of their designated uses. The remaining 56 per cent of assessed miles fully supported all uses; of these, 3 per cent were considered threatened (i.e., water quality supported uses, but exhibited a deteriorating trend). The states evaluated support of the fish, shellfish and wildlife protection/propagation use most frequently, assessing a total of 466,617 stream miles (or 13 per cent of US stream miles) and reporting that 36 per cent were impaired for this use. In addition, the states assessed 303,317 stream miles for recreation (primary and secondary contact), which was found to be impaired in 28 per cent of these waters. According to the states, the top sources of river and stream impairment included: -agricultural activities, such as crop production, grazing and animal feeding operations; -hydro-modifications, such as water diversions, channelization and dam construction; -unknown or unspecified sources (i.e., the states could not identify specific sources). Other leading sources of impairment in streams included habitat alteration (e.g., loss of streamside habitat), natural sources (e.g., floods, droughts, wildlife), municipal discharges/sewage (which includes sewage treatment plant discharges and combined sewer overflows) and unspecified non-point sources. Other water facts: -40 per cent of America’s rivers and 46 per cent of lakes are too polluted for fishing, swimming or aquatic life. -Two-thirds of US estuaries and bays are either moderately or severely degraded from eutrophication (nitrogen and phosphorus pollution). -The Mississippi River – which drains nearly 40 per cent of the continental United States, including its central farm lands – carries an estimated 1.5 million metric tons of nitrogen pollution into the Gulf of Mexico each year. The resulting hypoxic coastal dead zone in the Gulf each summer is about the size of Massachusetts. -1.2 trillion gallons of untreated sewage, stormwater and industrial waste is discharged into US waters annually. The US EPA has warned that sewage levels in rivers could be back to the superpolluted levels of the 1970s by the year 2016. -In any given year, about 25 per cent of beaches in the US are under advisories or are closed at least once because of water pollution.
