Brief Explanation

My Aquifer > Groundwater in the LPRV > Where does the water we drink come from?


The aquifer receives between two-thirds and three-quarters of its recharge water from the southern Bannock mountain range. All of the water withdrawn by Pocatello and Chubbuck comes from wells in the lower Portneuf valley. Water is pumped from these wells to storage tanks located on the benches and then is distributed to residents by a network of underground pipelines.
