General Notes: *Median value gives the value for the "average" county for this metric, the 50th percentile of all counties reporting data. **Water withdrawn from a groundwater or surface-water source by a user rather than being obtained from a public supply. Amount of water delivered from a public supplier to users for domestic, commercial, industrial, thermoelectric-power, or public-use purposes. Estimates of deliveries for each purpose were provided for 1995 and earlier years, but not for 2000. For 2005, only domestic deliveries were estimated nationally. Water used for indoor household purposes such as drinking, food preparation, bathing, washing clothes and dishes, flushing toilets, and outdoor purposes such as watering lawns and gardens. Domestic water use includes potable and non-potable water provided to households by a public water supplier (domestic deliveries) and self-supplied water.
