Executive SummaryThe Osage Nation lacks a comprehensive tribal water plan to describe the quality and quantity of water resources in the Osage Nation, a 2,square-mile (mi2) area of rolling pastures, tallgrass prairie, and mixed woodlands in northeastern Oklahoma.

Water Resources of the United States. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) collects information needed to understand the Nation's water resources, and provides access to water data, publications, and maps, as well as to recent water projects and events.

The majority of water used for thermoelectric power, public supply, irrigation, mining, and industrial purposes came from surface-water sources. Of all the water used in the United States in (aboutmillion gallons per day (Mgal/d), fresh and saline), about 74 percent (, Mgal/d) came from surface-water sources.

A number of key messages emerge from the foregoing discussion of water resources. Demand for these limited resources continues to increase as populations grow and move.

Sound management depends on reliable information about the quantity and quality of water available and how this availability varies in time and from place to place. It is important to enhance the understanding of all elements. Since surface water is more easily accessible than groundwater, it is relied on for many human uses.

It is an important source of drinking water and is used for the irrigation of farmland. Inalmost 80 percent of all water used in the United States came from surface water.

Select Committee on National Water Resources, Publisher: Washington, D.C.: United States Government Printing Office, Nationally, USGS surface-water data includes more thanstation years of time-series data that describe stream levels, streamflow (discharge), reservoir and lake levels, surface-water quality, and rainfall.

The data are collected by automatic recorders and manual field measurements at installations across the Nation. The water resources of the United States—including its ground water, streams, rivers, lakes, aquifers, and reservoirs—provide drinking water, transport products, support industries, and provide recreational opportunities, along with many other purposes to each and every person in the United States.
