Springs, running streams, wells, rivers, and lakes still suffice to furnish us with water, but for years, the writer has been concerned about the indication of a lack of an abundant supply of water on the farms of the southeast section of East Texas. The writer noticed that the majority of the farms do not have watering systems for livestock, irrigation or convenient water locations for crops, nor running water in houses for human use and personal consumption. Observant indications are that unsanitary springs, big creeks, and tanks still serve as sources of the water supply on numerous farms in this section. In proportion to these observations, the study is designed to determine the extent of water sources and uses on the farm.
