Estimated Water Withdrawals and Use in Vermont, by Laura Medalie Abstract Data on water withdrawals and use in Vermont in were compiled by major river basin and county as part of a nationwide effort by the U.S.

Geological Survey to describe water use in the United States by major water-use categories. With­Author: Laura Medalie. Get this from a library. Estimated water withdrawals and use in Vermont, [Laura Medalie; Geological Survey (U.S.)]. Background: The U.S. Geological Survey has compiled the nation's water-use data in Vermont and the rest of the United States at the county, state, and national levels every 5 years since The most recent estimated water-use compilation was completed in A summary for Vermont is presented on this webpage.

The Issue: Comprehensive water-use data analysis is needed to quantify the stress. Estimated freshwater withdrawals during in Vermont totaled about million gallons per day. The largest withdrawals were for thermoelectric- power generation (82 percent), industrial use (7 percent), and public supply (6 percent).

Most withdrawals, million gallons per day, were made from surface-water sources as compared to million gallons per day from ground-water sources.

Inabout 12 percent of total water withdrawals ( million gallons per day (Mgal/d)) in Vermont were from groundwater sources (51 Mgal/d), and about 88 percent were from surface-water sources ( Mgal/d).

Of total water withdrawals, about 78 percent were used for cooling at a power plant, 9 percent were withdrawn by public suppliers, about 5 percent were withdrawn for domestic use.

Total water Estimated water withdrawals and use in Vermont in the United States are estimated at billion gallons per day (Bgal/day) in This Estimated water withdrawals and use in Vermont % less than withdrawals for and confirms an overall stabilization of.

Total water use in the United States has been estimated by the USGS every five years since National estimates focus primarily on measuring total water withdrawals, which include the annual extractions of both fresh water (with separate estimates for surface water and groundwater withdrawals) and saline water.

water withdrawals, Roy et al. use the most recent USGS report of water use in the United States 4 as the base withdrawals, a national withdrawal rate for all wet closed cycle cooling technologies.

Vermont Regulations Pertaining to Surface Water Management December, 5 administration of the federal Clean Water Act in Vermont) are empowered to carry out water quality planning and protection. The current federal rules implementing the (e) requirements are in 40 CFR For Non-Drinking Water Groundwater Withdrawal Reporting and Permitting: This class of permits and reporting requirements are for groundwater withdrawals that do not meet the exemption criteria listed in Act as follows: withdrawals used exclusively for fire suppression, or other public emergencies; domestic, residential use; farming; dairy processing and milk handlers licensed in accordance.

The Vermont Water Quality Standards (VTWQS) are rules intended to achieve the goals of the Vermont Surface Water Strategy, as well as the objective of the federal Clean Water Act which is to restore and maintain the chemical, physical, and biological integrity of the Nation's water.

The classification of waters is in included in the VTWQS. The classification of all waters has been established. The Impacts of Ground Water Withdrawals State agencies and the U.S. Geological Survey have been tracking the impacts of increasing ground water withdrawals on aquifers and nearby surface water supplies, such as streams and lakes.

Among their findings: Ground water withdrawals can affect both ground water and surface water. Intensive. The total water use for the month of December is then estimated as: 10, gallons x 31 days =gallons or million gallons. Other Agricultural Water Withdrawals to be Considered In addition to livestock consumption, other on-farm water uses may need to be considered in order to obtain a complete agricultural water withdrawal number.
