    Quality of Water from Public-Supply Wells in the United States, Overview of Major Findings. Summary of Major Findings and Implications About million people in the United States-more than one-third of the Nation's population-receive their drinking water from about , public water systems that use groundwater as their source.   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 supplies.

    because it typifies many of the water systems in the United States that rely on water sources including rivers, lakes, and low-level water retention dams. Other water supply sources are examined under Topic 3 in this chapter. Understanding the fundamentals of a municipal water supply delivery system is essential to closely.   American drinking water supplies are among the safest in the world. The disinfection of water has played a critical role in improving drinking water quality in the United States. In , Jersey City, New Jersey was the first city in the United States to begin routine disinfection of community drinking water.

    These pages provide access to water-resources data collected at approximately million sites in all 50 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.
