One-hundred percent of the residents of Mahaska County rely on ground water as the source of their drinking water. It is estimated that the use of ground water in the county currently approaches 1.2 billion gallons per year. For comparison, this amount would provide each resident with 143 gallons of water a day during the 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.
