The Texas Water Plan has given extensive attention to the availability of ground water in aquifers of the state. By the year 2020, approximately 5,400,000 acre-ft of ground water will be used in meeting the State's water requirements. There are approximately 5,000,000 acre-ft of water available annually from the major and minor aquifers of the State and approximately 365,000,000 acre-ft available from storage in aquifers which receive little or no recharge.
