Water Supply and the Trinity Aquifer

Water is an essential natural resource.
  • One-fifth of the U.S. economy would grind to a halt without a reliable and clean source of water
  • Americans use an average of 176 gallons of water per day, that’s 64,240 gallons per year 
  • Water contained in aquifers below the earth’s surface is the source of 33% of the water used by households and businesses in the U.S. comes from aquifers below the earth’s surface
  • Most of the state of Texas gets water from aquifers, the only places underground where water can be found in usable quantities 
  • Wells can be drilled into the aquifers to produce water
  • Continued growth in Texas depends on water sources such as those provided by Texas Water Supply
