Abstract

The Tri-County region includes Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham Counties in the south-central Lower Peninsula of Michigan (fig. 1). People in the Lansing Metropolitan area, which is located near the center of this region, generally enjoy high-quality drinking water. In fact, taste testers ranked Lansing's water as second in the Nation at the 1988 American Water Resources Association Water-Use Symposium in Tucson, Arizona. However, a drought in 1988 and subsequent water rationing within the Tri-County region prompted local communities to assess the adequacy of water resources for future needs. As part of that effort, this fact sheet provides a brief overview of the development of ground-water resources within the region.
