This report provides an estimate of the hydrologic footprint for the Caterpillar Corporation facility in Montgomery, IL. The hydrologic footprint includes conventional water use at the facility, evaporated water associated with electricity use, on-site stormwater, and conventional and evaporative water uses associated with the Caterpillar supply chain. At this facility, the total hydrologic footprint is about 86x106 m3/y (33x1010 gal/y), and water withdrawal by industries in the supply chain dominates the hydrologic footprint.
