      Agriculture is a major user of ground and surface water in the United States, accounting for approximately 80 percent of the Nation's consumptive water use and over 90 percent in many Western States. Efficient irrigation systems and water management practices can help maintain farm profitability in an era of increasingly limited and more costly water . Fire Loss in the United States During This report contains overall statistics from the NFPA survey of fire departments on fires, civilian deaths and injuries, and property damage in It also includes patterns by major property class, region and community size as well as information on types of fire department calls and false alarms.

    Across the United States, the practices for collecting water use data vary significantly from state to state and vary also from one water use category to another, in response to the laws regulating water use and interest in water use data as an input for water management. Potable water comprises only a small fraction of the total use of water in the United States, with the main uses of freshwater resources being agricultural (for example, irrigation, animal feeding operations) and industrial (for example, cooling towers) activities activities, in addition to medical ones (for example, hemodialysis, dental procedures), are commonly referred to as.

    Estimated Use of Water in the United States, ABSTRACT The e; toted average withdrawal use of water in the United Sictes during was almost , mgd (million gallons per day), exclusive of water used to develop water-power. This estimated use amounts to about 1, gpd (gal-lons per day) per capita. An additional 2,, mgd were.   However, the variation in water use persists even when water use is measured in per capita terms. Per capita domestic water use shows large variation across states, as shown in figure 4, ranging from 51 gallons per day in Wisconsin to gallons per day in Idaho, with Utah ( gallons) and Arizona ( gallons) close behind.

In the report, Estimated Use of Water in the United States inthe USGS found that water use remains stable despite population growth, and that the chief water users for the Nation are power generation, agriculture and public water supply.

The USGS report also finds that public supply use of water is rising, but not faster than population. Dieter, C., et al. () Estimated use of water in the United States in U.S. Geological Survey Circular U.S.

Common law sources of water law. The United States inherited the British common law system which develops legal principles through judicial decisions made in the context of disputes between parties.

Statutory and constitutional law forms the framework within which these disputes are resolved, to some extent, but decisional law developed through the resolution of specific.
