This bi-state aquifer is the sole source for drinking water for over 50,000 people who live and work in and around Pullman Washington, Moscow Idaho, Washington State University and University of Idaho. The basin is managed by members of the Palouse Basin Aquifer Committee in a collaborative manner. Details for management are described in the 1992 Palouse Basin Ground Water Management Plan.
