As we know and as we have heard, the Ogallala Aquifer in the High Plains is loosing water at a high rate.  One of the front page articles in the December 11-13, 2015 issue of USA Today – Weekend discussed the crisis of water loss from this aquifer as well as others across this country.  The same article can also be found on the USA Today website and is Titled: PUMPED DRY.


A related website is one of the Us Geological Service that produced a video of how the Ogallala Aquifer water levels have changed over time.  This is an interesting look at what over using water can do to an aquifer.  As this use of water increases, we need to look at management practices that will aid in conserving water resources where possible.
