EPA Report on Water's Economic Impact

Every Watershed Watch Volunteer knows water's importance.  In a recent report issued by EPA, the agency quantifies water's economic value.   Water’s fundamental role in many facets of our lives has an impact of several trillion dollars.  Using data from the USGS, the report shows that the vast majority (at least 83%) of water withdrawn from surface and groundwater sources is used either for production of food or in the generation of thermoelectric power.  The report is relatively short (less than 30 pages), but the EPA’s resource web page has links to the technical report and associated research studies.
