Abstract

Approximately 90 percent of the residents of Dallas County rely on ground water as the source of their drinking water. It is estimated that the use of ground water currently approaches 1.5 billion gallons per year. For comparison, this amount would provide each resident with 158 gallons of water a day during a year. Actually, few if any households use this much water, and the rather large annual per capita use reflects the greater water requirements of the county's industries, agribusinesses, and municipalities.
