Some of the questions I was asked was how much of the water michigan get is filtered and what percentage is used for water like baths, sinks,etc. Most of the stuff was really hard to find.

There are a lot of good search tips that I found very helpful. I think one of them is a google tutorial that applies to a lot of other sites, including USGS.

Does anyone want to share loose questions from Regionals? I need to practice, but I want to use the USGS website. If you want to trade questions, just PM me.
There once was a group of teens
Who were lean mean science machines.
They liked to win medals,
when everything settles
and their favorite color was green.

I don't think past tests used the USGS domain, though.
