    General Notes: *Median value gives the value for the "average" county for this metric, the 50th percentile of all counties reporting data. **Water used for fabrication, processing, washing, and cooling. Includes industries such as chemical and allied products, food, mining, paper and allied products, petroleum refining, and steel. Industrial water use in 1950-1980 water-use circulars also included thermoelectric power water use which was reported as a subtotal, with the current industrial uses called other industrial. In 1985 thermoelectric power became a separate category, and mining and commercial uses were also split out from industrial in 1985 and reported as separate categories. The term industrial water use was used in the 1985-1995 water-use circulars to describe the combined public-supply deliveries to industrial users and self-supplied industrial withdrawals. For 2000 to present, industrial water use refers only to self-supplied industrial withdrawals. Includes both saline and fresh water.
