    Aug 10,  · Ogallala Aquifer Depletion Affects Midwest Farmers We’re pulling much more water out of the High Plains aquifer than we’re putting in. Gardening A-Z E-Book Add to cart. An In-Depth. The U.S. Geological Survey Dec. 16 released a report detailing changes of groundwater levels in the High Plains Aquifer. The report presents water-level change data in the aquifer for two.

    Treatise on Geochemistry, Book Chapter in press. Interpretation of water-level changes in the High Plains aquifer in western Kansas. Ground Water, 51(2): Periglacial-glacial cycling and the geochemical evolution of Canadian Shield groundwaters. Geochimica Cosmochimica Acta, 76(1), 9. The High Plains aquifer is a system of six hydraulically connected hydrogeologic, or water bearing, units. The most extensive of these units is the Ogallala Formation, which makes up about three-fourths of the total High Plains aquifer—hence the local name Ogallala aquifer.

    Dr. Butler pointed out that, by grouping together all other aquifer inflows and outflows into a single term (net inflow), the aquifer water balance equation can be rewritten as water volume change equals net inflow minus pumping. In the High Plains aquifer in Kansas, more than 95 percent of the high capacity pumping wells are metered. Current water use and management practices are projected into the future to explore their related impact on the High Plains Aquifer, barring any changes in water management practices, regulat ion, or policy. Finally, the impact of declining water levels and even exhaustion of groundwater resources are projected for specific sectors of the.

The Ogallala Aquifer (oh-guh-LAH-luh) is a shallow water table aquifer surrounded by sand, silt, clay, and gravel located beneath the Great Plains in the United States. One of the world's largest aquifers, it underlies an area of approximatelysq mi (, km 2) in portions of eight states (South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Texas).

Water-level declines began in parts of the High Plains aquifer soon after the beginning of substantial irrigation with groundwater in the aquifer area (about ). This report presents water-level changes and change in recoverable water in storage in the High Plains aquifer from predevelopment (about ) to and from to Which is the best explanation for the changes in water level in the High Plains aquifer.

Explain why you chose your answer. a) The distribution of present-day rainfall on land above the aquifer. b) Differences in the thickness of the rocks that make up the aquifer.

This report presents water-level changes in the High Plains aquifer from the time before substantial groundwater irrigation development had occurred (about and termed “predevelopment” in. The Ogallala Aquifer, or High Plains Aquifer, is a vast yet shallow aquifer located beneath the Great Plains in the United States.

One of the world's largest aquifers, it lies under aboutmi² (, km²) in portions of South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, New. The volume of water in storage in the High Plains aquifer in is estimated at about billion acre-feet. Area-weighted, average water-level changes for the aquifer were declines of feet from tofeet from tofeet from toand foot from to Authors: Brenda K.

The High Plains aquifer is the primary source of water for the production of food and fiber in the Great Plains area, central United States, and drives much of the economy of this region. However, the saturated thickness of the central and southern portions of the aquifer has diminished since the early s because of an imbalance between Cited by: 3.

Dec 19,  · The Kansas portion of the High Plains aquifer is divided into three subunits—the extensive Ogallala aquifer that underlies much of western Kansas and parts of seven surrounding states, the Great Bend Prairie aquifer in west-central Kansas, and the Equus Beds aquifer north and west of.

The High Plains aquifer has been extensively studied. Weeks and others (), Luckey and others (), Cooley and Crist (), and Lowry and Crist () described various aspects of the High Plains aquifer system related to the Cheyenne, Wyoming area.

Water-level changes from to were examined in wells screened in the High Plains aquifer within the Republican River Basin and the results are now available in a new U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Map. Changes ranged from a rise of feet to a decline of feet.

Feb 06,  · Groundwater depletion has been a concern in the Southwest and High Plains for many years, but increased demands on our groundwater resources have overstressed aquifers in many areas of the Nation, not just in arid regions.

In addition, groundwater depletion occurs at scales ranging from a single well to aquifer systems underlying several states.A Field Manual for Groundwater-level Monitoring at the Texas Water Development Board Janie Hopkins, P.G.

& water-level changes (or lack of) over a long period of time, water levels collected and posted one remaining aquifer, the Ogallala (or High Plains) Aquifer, that was not included in the original water-level subnetwork.The Ogallala Aquifer is a massive store of groundwater that quenches the thirst of people, crops and livestock throughout the Great Plains.

The aquifer extends, roughly, from Midland, Texas, through the Texas Panhandle and all the way to South Dakota. In fact, it's the aquifer that makes the current way of life on the Plains possible.
