This report, part of a cooperative program with the U.S. Geological Survey, summarizes the results of the 1980 Illinois Water Inventory Program. The water use data are presented for the following categories: Public Water Supply (1778.5 mgd), Self-Supplied Industry (40,253.3 mgd), Rural Water Use (280.5 mgd), and Fish and Wildlife Management Areas (26.7 mgd). The data are then further categorized by county, districts, hydrologic units, major aquifer systems, and Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas.

Illinois water withdrawals during 1980 were 42,339.0 mgd, of which groundwater provided 981.5 mgd and surface water sources supplied 41,357.5 mgd. The largest user of water in Illinois is electric power generation, 93.6 percent of the total withdrawals. Excluding electric power withdrawals, 1980 groundwater use was 973.1 mgd, and surface water use was 1735.2 mgd.
