Surface Water Usage in the United States

In America, surface water can be used for everything from drinking water to irrigation to thermo-electric power. It’s also used in mining and for other manufacturing and industrial purposes. As much as 74% of water usage in the United States comes from surface water, according to the USGS.

Surface Water: Managing a Finite Resource

Even as water withdrawals remain heavily dependent on surface water, America, and the world at large, is seeing this water source dwindling as climate change affects rainfall patterns and glacial ice melt. As extreme weather events continue to become the new normal, it’s becoming ever more apparent that surface water treatment is serious business, and we can no longer treat it as a limitless exploitable resource. Therefore, careful management and monitoring remain a priority. In some industries, regulations are becoming more stringent, and companies need to revisit how they’re handling compliance.
