1.0 acre foot = 325,851 gallons
Water is commonly measured in acre-feet. One acre-foot of water can fill one acre of land, approximately the size of a football field, 1 foot deep. An acre-foot of water can supply the annual indoor and outdoor needs of one to two urban households. Palisades Reservoir can hold 1.2 million acre feet of water. That means when Palisades is full, at any one time, could supply roughly 2.4 million households for an entire year!
