Abstract

The purpose of this investigation has been to gather information which might aid in the proper development and utilization of the ground-water resources of Bernalillo County. Ground-water is one of the most valuable resources in the area. Its importance may best be realized by considering the fact that most of the water used in the County comes from wells. Albuquerque has increased its total annual consumption from 385,000,000 gallons in 1920 to an estimated 2,897,000,000 gallons in 1947, owing largely to a large population increase. Per capita annual consumption rose from 25,400 gallons in 1920 to 55,711 gallons in 1947 (Albuquerque Progress, 1947, p.2)
