The amount of ground water pumped is approximately 200 cubic feet per second, which is about 5 percent of the total discharge at the 80 percent point on flow-duration curves for major streams. Ground-water recharge is variable and occurs through sinkholes by infiltration in upland areas of good permeability, and through streambeds that lose flow.
