Water-Use Data for Kentucky

The U.S. Geological Survey's National Water-Use Information Program is responsible for compiling and disseminating the nation's water-use data. The USGS works in cooperation with local, State, and Federal environmental agencies to collect water-use information at a site-specific level, such as the amount of water used to produce power at a fossil-fuel power-generation plant in Kentucky.

USGS also compiles the data from hundreds of thousands of these sites to produce water-use information aggregated up to the county, state, and national levels. Every five years, data at the state and hydrologic region level are compiled into a national water-use data system and are published in a national circular.

Calendar Year 2000 Water-Use data estimates for the state of Kentucky, by county:

A data dictionary (documentation describing the data) is also available.
