    In most of the aquifer area, the Ogallala Formation of Miocene age and overlying hydraulically connected Quaternary deposits, if present, are the principal geologic units in the aquifer. In northwestern Nebraska, south central South Dakota, and southeastern Wyoming, the fractured part of the Brule Formation or the Arikaree Group, is the. The Ogallala Aquifer is named for resting atop of the Ogallala Formation of the Miocene Age, which is considered the principal geological unit of the aquifer. The Ogallala Formation consists of a heterogeneous sequence of clay, silt, sand, and gravel. 4 Because this aquifer is located within the larger High Plains Aquifer, the possibility of Author: Kylienne A. Clark, Travis R. Shaul, Brian H. Lower.

    Ogallala Blue: Water and Life on the High Plains, by William Ashworth, is a High Plains Public Radio community read. The book chronicles the development, management and possible fate of the Ogallala, the largest aquifer within the High Plains aquifer system. At its essence, the book is about the people and the place that rely on the aquifer. 5 A New Book on the Sutherland Springs Shooting Explores Resilience, Forgiveness, and Grace. 6 ‘Trust Me’ Tackles Politics, Power, and Perception.

    Ogallala Aquifer Initiative. Documents require Acrobat Reader. Program Description. The Ogallala Aquifer lies beneath the Great Plains region of the United States, extending northward from western Texas and New Mexico to Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, Nebraska, and . The Ogallala Aquifer which underlies much of the High Plains in the United States is one of the world’s largest aquifers and arguably one of the most important. It underlies small parts of South Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico, the panhandles of Texas and Oklahoma, about a third of Kansas and most of Nebraska, a total area of about.

The Ogallala aquifer is vast underground water table situated under The Great Plains in the US (South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Texas).It makes up 80% of the high plaines and supplies drinking water for 82% of million ts $20 billion in agriculture.

Threats FARMING: Since there has been a depletion due to the rate of extraction. These worrisome prospects form the dramatic backdrop to a book titled Ogallala: Water for a Dry Land, now out in its third it, my fellow historians John Opie and Kenna Lang Archer and I set current debates over the Ogallala Aquifer in the context of the region’s equally conflicted past.

Draining the source. In the s, farmers in the region asserted that there was a steady. Use of the Ogallala began at the turn of the century, and since World War II reliance on it has steadily increased. The withdrawal of this groundwater has now greatly surpassed the aquifer’s rate of natural recharge.

Some places overlying the aquifer have already exhausted their underground supply as a source of Size: KB.

The Ogallala aquifer extends from the northern United States into the Texas Panhandle and West Texas and is the primary source of water within the District. The aquifer consists of sands, gravel, silts, and clay sediments that were deposited as part of ancient river systems approximately three to six million years ago during the Neogene.

The Ogallala Aquifer Crisis Is Uniquely American, With Global Consequences. The Ogallala Aquifer is a huge table of groundwater that covers portions of eight Western States. The system contains as much water as Lake Huron and is one of the planet’s largest sources of fresh water.

To destroy God's. 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).

Ogallala Aquifer Initiative Underlying the Great Plains in eight states, the Ogallala supports nearly one-fifth of the wheat, corn, cotton and cattle produced in the United States.

It has long been the main water supply for the High Plains’ population and is being used at an unsustainable rate. Gray Literature, Ogallala Aquifer in Nebraska, Categorized by Publication Type.

* Contains Reports from Conference Proceedings, Private Papers, and the U.S. Army ** Primarily Published by the.The Problem with the Ogallala Aquifer. The Ogallala Aquifer is being depleted at a rapid speed. Farming accounts for 94% of the groundwater use. In fact, since the introduction of large scale irrigation in the ’s, water levels in the Ogallala Aquifer have declined over feet in many parts, according to The Water Encyclopedia.

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.
