Approximately 96 percent of the water used in Louisa County is drawn from ground water sources. It is estimated that the use of ground water in the county currently approaches 0.6 billion gallons per year. For comparison, this amount would provide each county resident with 177 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.
