2% of total U.S. electricity use goes towards moving and treating water and wastewater, a 52% increase in electricity use since 3 Most cities use 3, kWh/million gallons of water delivered and treated.

5 Electricity use accounts for around 80% of municipal water processing and distribution costs. Inground water accounted for 39 percent of water withdrawn for public supply for cities and towns and 96 percent of water withdrawn by self-supplied systems for domestic use.

A variety of chemicals, including nitrate, can pass through the soil and potentially contaminate ground water. Public Supply water use refers to water withdrawn by public and private water suppliers, such as county and municipal water works, and delivered to users for domestic, commercial, and industrial purposes.

Inthe majority of the nation's population, about million, or 84 percent, used water delivered from public water suppliers. Water use in the United States in was estimated to be an average of bgd (billion gallons per day) of fresh and saline water for offstream uses- an 8-percent increase from the estimate and a percent increase from the estimate.

When this occurs, the two groups can't be separated and are referred to as public use and losses. Public use and losses by State ranged from 3 to 41 percent, and averaged 14 percent of public water supply withdrawals in the United States in (Solley and others, ).
