Water Use Program inventories surface and groundwater withdrawals and depletions by category, county, and river basin. The bureau maintains water-use databases and analyzes crop, weather, and water-use data. The bureau quantifies water requirements for irrigation and other uses and prepares technical reports for the water resources investigations and adjudication activities of the Water Resource Allocation and Litigation and Adjudication programs.
