With its complete and detailed analyses of water use, the report provides a major input to available water-resources planning data for Alabama. The contents of the report will be most helpful to planners at all levels in planning for the development and management of Alabama's water and related land resources. It analyzes water use by major categories, such as consumptive and non-consumptive uses and also by types of use, such as municipal, industrial, and agricultural. These uses are also shown by counties and by major river basins. It compares present and projected use with available supplies and arrives at the conclusion that with regard to quantity of water, there is no general deficit in Alabama and, with prudent management of the resource, none should occur.
