Additional data-base management procedures have been instituted to minimize inconsistencies in comparable data. i 2 WATER-LEVEL CHANGES IN THE HIGH PLAINS AQUIFER-PREDEVELOPMENT TO Cited by: 7. The estimated average area-weighted water-level change, from to waseven though precipitation was well-above normal in in the High Plains.

Water- level declines of 3 to 5 feet were widespread in the intensively irrigated areas of southwestern Kansas and the northern part of the Southern High Plains of Texas. This report presents water-level changes in the High Plains aquifer from the time before substantial groundwater irrigation development began (generally beforeand termed “predevelopment.

The water-level rises in parts of the eastern High Plains of Nebraska and the extreme southern High Plains of Texas are closely associated with well above normal precipitation in these areas since (Click on image for a larger version, 50 Kbytes).

High Plains Aquifer Water-Level Monitoring Study Water-Level Changes in the High Plains Aquifer--Predevelopment to By Jack T. Dugan and Donald E. Schild. U.S. Geological Survey Water-Resources Investigations Report Lincoln, Nebraska Abstract.

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).

The High Plains aquifer underlies million acres (, square miles) in parts of eight States—Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, and Wyoming.

Water-level declines began in parts of the High Plains aquifer soon after the beginning of substantial irrigation with groundwater in the aquifer area. This report presents water-level changes in the High Cited by: A large imbalance between recharge and water withdrawal has caused vital regions of the High Plains Aquifer (HPA) to experience significant declines in storage.

A new predevelopment map coupled with a synthesis of annual water levels demonstrates that aquifer storage has declined by approximately km 3 since the s, a 15% larger decline. Dugan, J. T., Schild, E. Water-Level Changes in the High Plains Aquifer - Predevelopment to (WRIR).

Geological Survey has released a new report detailing changes of groundwater levels in the High Plains Aquifer. The report presents water-level change data in the aquifer in two separate periods: from –the time prior to significant groundwater irrigation development–toand to WATER LEVEL CHANGES IN THE HIGH PLAINS AQUIFER PREDEVELOPMENT TO MAGUIRE USGS.

The USGS estimates that in the aquifer contained about billion acre-feet of drainable water (an acre-foot is the volume of a oneacre area one foot thick or 43, cubic feet). McGrath, T.

Recent studies show that excessive withdrawal from the OA has substantially reduced its water level (about 50 m in some areas), significantly increased pumping costs, and reduced irrigated areas by nearly 50 percent [8,9,10,11].If this trend continues, an additional 40 percent of the irrigated land in some areas of the southern High Plains (SHP) will likely be converted to dryland farming : Ram N.
