The claypan area of Illinois is characterized by unreliable water supplies. In addition, water quality problems have recently been recognized in the form of widespread nitrate and coliform contamination of water in private wells in Washington County. A ten-square mile area in this county was selected for study. The nature of present water supplies was described and the costs of six alternative supply systems were estimated: (1) present on-farm sources, (2) treatment of pond water, (3) combination of present on-farm sources plus hauling, (4) hauling all water, (5) purchasing all water from nearby municipality via pipeline, and (6) combination pipeline plus present on-farm sources.
