Rural Water Use

Water used in suburban or farm areas for domestic and livestock needs. The water generally is self supplied (i.e., not supplied by a Public Water Supply System) and includes domestic use, drinking water for livestock, and other uses, such as dairy sanitation, evaporation from stock-watering ponds, and cleaning and waste disposal. Uses may also include suburban developments such as apartment houses, or trailer courts with their own wells, and tracts of homes served by a central cooperatively owned well, or small water company for which no other source is available.
