The Edwards Aquifer, located in Texas, is a water resource system where proper sustainable planning and land use has taken place over the years. It spans approximately from Austin to San Antonio and is responsible for the water supply of a substantial part of the population. It contains three clear zones that define water planning and use strategies: artesian (confined), transitional (confined/unconfined), and unconfined.
