Abstract

Approximately 50% of the water used in Lucas County comes from ground water sources. It is estimated that the use ~f ground water in the county currently approaches .33 billion gallons per year. For comparison, this amount would provide each resident with 89 gallons of water a day during the year. These higher per capita figures reflect the larger demands of livestock and commercial uses. The users of ground water in the county draw their supplies from several different geologic sources. Several factors must be considered in determining the availability of ground water and the adequacy of a supply source.
