Water may be obtained from a public-supply system or may be self-supplied. Commercial water-use estimates were included in industrial water use until 1985, then were reported as a separate category. Commercial water use estimates were last reported nationally for 1995. 1985: Self-supplied commercial water use first reported as separate category from industrial 1990-1995: Commercial category includes offstream fish hatchery water use for some States 2000-later: Commercial category not estimated nationally: offstream fish hatchery water use is reported in the Aquaculture categoryIncludes both saline and fresh water. The part of water withdrawn that is evaporated, transpired, incorporated into products or crops, consumed by humans or livestock, or otherwise not available for immediate use. Water returned to a different watershed than the point of withdrawal (interbasin transfer) is not considered a consumptive use. Also referred to as water consumed. 1960-1995: Consumptive use reported by water-use category 2000-later: Consumptive use not estimated nationally
