We have a ledge behind our yard from which significant ground water flows. When we first built our home much of this water ended up in our sump pump which was pumped back outside. Eventually we had constructed a curtain drain around the back of our yard which drains into an undergroud 400 Gal holding tank. Our sump pump now pumps into that tank as well.
There is a high pressure pump inside that tank that drives our Hunter irrigation system and is the ONLY source of water. It works fine on two cycles per day from late april throug late july/early auguest when the flow slows somewhat.
For what its worth this setup severs two purposes - it waters the lawn AND it collects and distributes the ground water. Both beneficial to us.
So, hopefully this at least lets you know that someone is using ground water for irrigation.
Good luck.
