The report is an analysis of factors which influence domestic water purchase among residents of a rural Kentucky county who must purchase hauled water. The results of the analysis are compared with previous studies of factors which influence domestic water use by urban dwellers participating in a piped water distribution system. The results of the analysis of rural water purchase corroborate the findings from the studies of urban water use, showing that the amount of water purchased by a household is influenced by the socio-economic status of that household and by the price paid for water.
