The Kansas Geological Survey has installed index wells, one in each of the three western Kansas Groundwater Management Districts, to continuously monitor water levels in the Ogallala-High Plains aquifer. The grain-growing region in the High Plains of America—known as America’s breadbasket—relies entirely on the Ogallala Aquifer.

But long term unsustainable use of the aquifer is forcing states in the region to face the prospect of a regional economic disaster. As the High Plains states reach the verge of a major crisis, the states have [ ]. Kansas, Nebraska and Texas share the High Plains aquifer, the focus of this chapter is not primarily interstate sharing or disputes over the High Plains aqui-fer.

That issue is broached only briefly in the section on interstate conflict with the state of Kansas, which.

When it was first discovered, the High Plains Aquifer of Kansas was viewed as an unlimited natural resource, able to meet the seemingly insatiable needs of individuals and industries. However, as society’s thirst for fresh water has increased, the ability of the High Plains Aquifer to.

This subset of the High Plains aquifer covers the Republican River Basin in Nebraska, Kansas, and Colorado upstream from the streamflow station on the Republican River near Hardy, Nebraska, near the Kansas/Nebraska border.

HIGH PLAINS AQUIFER. INTRODUCTION. The High Plains aquifer underlies an area of aboutsquare miles in parts of Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, and Wyoming ().Parts of the aquifer are in Segments 2, 3, 4, 8, and 9 of this Atlas; for the most part, the aquifer is within Segments 3 and 4 and is discussed in detail only in the chapters that.

The High Plains aquifer components in Kansas are made up of the Ogallala, Great Bend Prairie, and Equus Beds regions as shown on the map below. The High Plains aquifer underlies aboutsquare miles of the central United States.

It falls east of the Rocky Mountains in the southern part of the Great Plains. Water from the Dakota aquifer, underneath the High Plains aquifer, has also been pumped out and used, but in some locations the water is salty. Nearly all water used in western Kansas is pumped out of the High Plains aquifer.

Since the s, large amounts of water have been drawn out of portions of the aquifer, especially for irrigation. High Plains aquifer of southwest Kansas (Sophocleous et al. ), although additional field-based experimental studies have been conducted by Prill (, ) inAuthor: Marios Sophocleous.

The Kansas Geological Survey's High Plains Aquifer Interactive Atlas provides a large amount of information on the High Plains Aquifer underneath western and central Kansas, which provides % of the water used in Kansas.

Features of this interactive map include: Annual water level measurements for hundreds of wells across the state, with records for many wells going back to the s. Havens, John S., a, Generalized altitude and configuration of the base of the High Plains regional aquifer, northwestern Oklahoma: U.S.

The report presents water-level change data in the aquifer for two separate periods: from – the time prior to significant groundwater irrigation development – toand from to   High Plains Home.

Average recharge rates for Nebraska and Kansas for the aquifer is around and inches per year. Publications. Reports for the High Plains Water-Level Monitoring Study (HPWLMS) were generated annually from to and generally every two years from to to report water-level changes in the High Plains aquifer from predevelopment to the reporting year.

Ogallala Part of High Plains Aquifer • Water levels have declined ~ ft/yr in GMDs 1 and 4 and ft/yr in GMD3 during the last 22 years. • Pumping reductions needed to achieve stable water levels in the Ogallala are 32%, 27%, and 24% for GMDs 1, 3, and 4, respectively, adjusted for.

These digital maps contain information on the altitude of the base, the extent, and the potentiometric surface (i.e. altitude of the water table) of the High Plains aquifer in Kansas. Included. The High Plains region in Kansas covers most of the western one-third of the state.

The High Plains, as a whole, stretch south, north, and west beyond Kansas into several other states. This entire High Plains region is a subregion of the Great Plains, which cover much of the middle of the United States and extend into Canada (where they are.

The High Plains underlies approximat square miles of 46 counties in western and south-central Kansas and is present in seven other states in the Great Plains region of the United States.

Depth below land surface to the base of the aquifer is over feet in parts of southwestern Kansas. The High Plains Aquifer Information Network was a project of the KGS and K-State to collect information sources on the High Plains/Ogallala Aquifer systems.
