Data on ground-water and surface-water use in Louisiana are available online in tabular form from the U.S. Geological Survey. Data are categorized by parish and by type of usage (e.g., public supply, irrigation, industry, and power generation) from 1960 to 2005. Water usage in Louisiana has complicated spatial and temporal trends which are not readily apparent in static tables. For example, ground-water usage varies from more than 200 million gallons a day in some rice farming parishes to less than 40,000 gallons a day in coastal parishes where most ground water is not potable. Baton Rouge Parish uses mostly ground...
