Data on projections of surface water withdrawal, consumption, and availability in the conterminous United States through the 21st century

Abstract

We report data on the projections of annual surface water demand and supply in the conterminous United States at a high spatial resolution from 2010s to the end of the 21st century, including: 1) water withdrawal and consumption in the water-use sectors of domestic, thermoelectric power generation, and irrigation; 2) availability of surface water generated from local watershed runoff, accumulated from upstream areas, and artificially transferred from other basins. These data were derived from the projected changes in climate, population, energy structure, technology and water uses. These data are related to the original article “Understanding the role of regional water connectivity in mitigating climate change impacts on surface water supply stress in the United States”.
