ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA. USACE IWR has published the first Irrigation Water Supply Database report. The report provides 2012 data on projects operated and maintained by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that contain irrigation as a purpose in a multipurpose reservoir project. The data in the report are generally developed along two lines, the static project data and the annual data related to water release and use. The municipal and industrial water supply module of the Operation and Maintenance Business Information Link has been modified to record these data. It is anticipated that the annual data will be updated on a yearly basis and reported in the Water Supply Database report published annually by the Institute for Water Resources.
This report provides data on projects operated and maintained by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that contain irrigation as a purpose in a multipurpose reservoir project. The data in this report are limited to projects in the Western United States in the three USACE western divisions: the North Pacific Division, the South Pacific Division and the Southwestern Division.
The report describes the background for USACE irrigation authority and irrigation water supply value to the nation. It includes data tables and appendices.
