The University of Northern Iowa (UNI) and the city of Cedar Falls, Iowa, rely heavily on groundwater from an aquifer underlying northeast Iowa. UNI extraction wells tap the aquifer largely as a source of once-through cooling water for its campus buildings, while Cedar Falls utilizes the aquifer as its municipal water source. Collectively, UNI and Cedar Falls withdraw over 4.5 billion gallons of groundwater from this aquifer each year.
