I would suggest that the water use information be made less ambiguous. The term "water use" is too generic and may result in less sophisticated users misusing the information. From what I can decipher from the documentation the 2002 "water use" data should be more accurately be labeled "water withdrawal" to differentiate it from "water consumption". While related, these are two distinct quantities and imply different impacts.

Chris - good suggestion.

We retitled the choice of dataset here to be "Water Withdrawals". Likewise the column name on the results now shows up as "Water Withdrawals".

Btw, which documentation were you referring to in your message below?

Thanks Scott,

The documentation I was referring to was your post about the inclusion of the water data and the ES&T paper.
