Groundwater

Aquifers in Texas Water Development Board

What is an aquifer? Groundwater from aquifers sustains life of every kind in Texas. It is a key resource to every industry in Texas.

How Do Aquifers Work?
How Do Aquifers Work?

An aquifer is best defined as a layer of saturated rock and the water in its pores. Aquifers were formed very slowly over vast periods of time. Water in aquifers comes originally from the surface of the Earth.

Groundwater Budget and Availability Models
Groundwater Budget and Availability Models

Texas decision makers work to ensure that groundwater is available for beneficial use today and for the next generation.

Using Groundwater Availability Models in Water Planning
Using Groundwater Availability Models in Water Planning

Historically, groundwater in Texas has been governed by the rule of capture, which grants landowners the right to pump the water beneath their property.

Typically farmers find ways to do the best with what they have available to them. And so if we want to see water conservation in agriculture, we're going to have to give the farmers better tools.
