Water is our single largest commodity, but we don’t account for our water resources as we do for other important commodities. How has our use of water across the United States changed in the past 50 years? Come learn what the USGS and its partners know — and don’t know — about the nation’s use of water.


The media is invited to a congressional briefing on how water is used throughout the country and what still needs to be learned about water use.
