Abstract

Total withdrawal Statewide by municipal suppliers serving over 1,000 people was 108 billion gallons in 1993. Most of Minnesota's municipal deliveries were for residential purposes. About 87 percent of suppliers withdraw from ground-water and 13 percent withdraw from surface-water sources. Water withdrawn for public supply has steadily risen since 1955 and the increase has mainly come from ground water. Declines in per capita use since 1990 may be related to heavy rainfall, conservation measures, and the installation of more efficient water-using machines.
