    As the state’s population has grown over the past several decades, so did the demand for water – in Florida’s population was around 13 million and has since increased to 20 million, with a current fresh water demand of BGD for drinking water. As part of the nationwide inventory of water use in , estimates of water use in Florida were made by counly, by source of water, and by principal use. The map shows the estimated water withdrawn in Florida in by counties by the major categories of public supply, self-supplied industrial, irrigation, and thermoelectric power generation.

    The CFWSC has an active presence in support of hydrologic research and monitoring across the Florida, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands region. We look forward to expanding our work with partner organizations throughout this region and identifying new projects of mutual interest relevant to our water-resources.

Public-Supply Water Use in Florida, By Richard L. Marella ABSTRACT Total water withdrawn for public-supply use in Florida for amounted to 1, million gallons per day and served nearly million residents.

Ground water supplied 90 percent (1, million gallons per day) of the public-sup­. Water withdrawn for public supply in Florida totaled 1, million gallons per day in Groundwater was the source of more than 88 percent of the water withdrawn for public supply, serving about million people.

The Floridan Aquifer supplied about million gallons per day (50 percent) of the water withdrawn for public supply. Public Public-supply water use in Florida represents about 14 percent of total freshwater withdrawals.

In some States, public-supply water sources include desalinated seawater or brackish groundwater that has been treated to reduce dissolved solids. Saline surface-water withdrawals for public-supply use were reported in U.S. Virgin Islands, Texas, Florida, and Massachusetts. Public-supply water use in Florida increased percent between and from Mgal/d (million gallons per day) to 1, Mgal/d.

This change is primarily a result of increases in population and tourism since Public-supply utilities provide water to a variety of users. In71 percent of the water used for public supply was delivered for residential uses, 15. Public-supply withdrawals for the United States.
