Attributes for NHDPlus version 2.1 catchments and modified routing of upstream watersheds for the conterminous United States: estimated withdrawal and consumption of water by thermoelectric power plants, 2010

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

This metadata record documents a comma separated ascii dataset of water withdrawal and consumption (not returned) amounts from thermoelectric power plants in the conterminous United States for 2010. These data are U.S. Geological Survey best estimates of annual water withdrawal and consumption values in million gallons per day (Mgal/d) as reported in Diehl and others, 2014. These values were estimated for all power plants that are 1 megawatt or greater in nameplate capacity and that generated electricity in 2010. The estimates were rounded, so power plants whose water use was estimated to be less than 0.005 Mgal/d were rounded to zero. Please see the Supplemental Information element of this metadata record for references cited.
