Freshwater Withdrawals by Sector
This figure appears in chapter 3 of the Climate Change Impacts in the United States: The Third National Climate Assessment report.
Total water withdrawals (groundwater and surface water) in the U.S. are dominated by agriculture and energy production, though the primary use of water for thermoelectric production is for cooling, where water is often returned to lakes and rivers after use (return flows). (Data from Kenny et al. 2009f532697a-e122-4502-8c18-9504efa60700).
