Water-Resource Development & Management in the Edwards Aquifer Region
MetadataShow full item record
This study is concerned with the development and management of water supplies in the Edwards Aquifer area. Currently, the Edwards Aquifer supplies approximately 300 thousand acre-feet of water annually to meet the diverse needs of nearly one million people. With increased demands due to municipal and agricultural growth in the area, it is apparent that the Edwards Aquifer, even with its exceptional recharge capacity, is not an inexhaustible water source. Hence, supplementary surface supplies must be developed to augment the high-quality, low-cost water now available from the aquifer.
