USGS Water Data for the Nation

Publicly accessible License 

The U.S. Geological Survey maintains national data bases of water-use information. The data are collected and compiled every five years for each State, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

County, state, and national water-use estimates may be downloaded from the National Water Information System Web (NWISWeb) interface, Water Data for the Nation, by selecting the Water Use button or data category pull-down. Data on NWISWeb represent the current best estimates, and may have been revised from previous publications. Data available from the USGS County Water-Use generally reflect the published report, and may have been revised in subsequent analyses.

Note: State-level data from 1950-1980 and watershed data are not available on NWISWeb, but they can be downloaded USGS County Water-Use Data link.
