This report presents a summary, by county, of total water use in Iowa for 1980. The total use is divided into five categories: Municipal, Rural-domestic and livestock, Industrial self-supplied, Irrigation, and Thermo electric-power generation.

Water to generate hydroelectric power is not included in this report because its use is not considered a withdrawal from a source.
