Value to the Nation: Water Supply Fast Facts

ALEXANDRIA, VA—September 13, 2010. IWR recently updated the Water Supply section of the Value to the Nation website with Water Supply Fast Facts. This interactive tool allows users to quickly view information on municipal and industrial water supply infrastructure throughout the country. Users can search for water supply projects by state or by Corps Division, and after selecting a particular project, data is presented including the watershed, river, Corps District, storage space, project yield and reservoir purpose(s).

Water Supply Fast Facts complements Report 10-R-2, “2009 Municipal and Industrial Water Supply Database,” which provides data on the 133 water supply projects operated and maintained by the Corps that contain municipal and industrial storage space. This report includes information on distribution of storage space, reallocations, revenues and more. By publishing this report on the IWR website and posting Water Supply Fast Facts on the Value to the Nation website, IWR is facilitating access to this data for Corps personnel, Congressional staff and the public.
