The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) compiled and integrated water-use data from 1980 to 2000 for coastal Georgia, South Carolina, and Florida for use in regional ground-water flow models. To represent accurately stresses on the ground-water flow system, ground-water flow models require that pumping rates be distributed temporally and spatially among three aquifer units. Water withdrawal data from different sources are inconsistent: pumping rates are estimated for different years or different schedules; data sets include estimates of single well or well-field specific pumping rates or a countywide aggregate pumping rate; and each of these data sources may not include aquifer designations. Several assumptions were made to construct model input to accommodate these inconsistencies.
