This report, part of a cooperative program with the U. S. Geological Survey, summarizes the results of the 1982 Illinois Water Inventory Program. Water use data are presented for the following categories: Public Water Supply (1739.8 mgd), Self-Supplied Industry (32,215.7 mgd). Rural Water (265.9 mgd), and Fish and Wildlife Management Areas (26.9 mgd). The data are then further categorized by counties, districts, hydrologic units, major aquifer systems, and Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas.

Illinois water withdrawals during 1982 were 33,248.3 mgd, of which ground water provided 985.3 mgd and surface water sources supplied 32,263.0 mgd. The largest user of water in Illinois is electric power generation, 91.6 percent of the total withdrawals. Excluding electric power withdrawals, 1982 ground-water use was 975.6 mgd, and surface water use was 1825.6 mgd.
