        (New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska, and South Dakota) For this reason, it is also referred to as the High Plains Aquifer. The conflict surrounding the Ogallala Aquifer deals with depleting water levels due to groundwater extraction far exceeding the average recharge rate and contamination of the aquifer.

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 irrigation.

One result of the growing competition for water is increased attention to the use of artificial recharge to augment ground water supplies. Stated simply, artificial recharge is a process by which excess surface water is directed into the ground—either by spreading on the surface, by using recharge wells, or by altering natural conditions to increase infiltration—to replenish an aquifer.

The USDA promotes Ogallala Aquifer conservation with NRCS money for cost-share projects, and a significant report published by the National Academy of Sciences stresses the need to conserve groundwater, and the state of Kansas changes water-rights laws to foster a culture of conservation rather than consumption.

The Ogallala Aquifer is the largest aquifer in the United States and is a major aquifer of Texas underlying much of the High Plains region.

The aquifer consists of sand, gravel, clay, and silt and has a maximum thickness of feet. The impacts of the depletion of the Ogallala aquifer on the economy of the Southern High Plains of Texas were estimated by predicting future cropping patterns over a year time horizon as the.

Artificial Recharge in the Southern Ogallala—Experiences with Playa Lake Water and Filter Underdrains. Ground water in southern portions of the Ogallala Aquifer has declined significantly over the past several years. Attempts to recharge playa water in the past have failed due to the clogging of pits or wells by the fine playa bottom material suspended in the water.

Artificial Aquifer Recharge Issues and Recommendations The following report was commissioned by the Oklahoma State Legislature in as a Appendix A Detailed Analysis of Recharge Region Number 2, Ogallala Aquifer near Woodward Appendix B Detailed Analysis of Recharge.

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. Among environmental professionals, 67 people (77%) were in favor of using treated sewage for artificial aquifer recharge, 18 (20%) were opposed while 3 people remained indifferent.

Out of the 48 non-environmental professionals 22 (%) were in favor of artificial recharge, 16 were (%) opposed and 5 people remained indifferent. Artificial-recharge experiments and operations have been under­ taken to develop methods to supplement the declining ground-water supplies in the Ogal lala Formation, a sand and gravel aquifer.

Artificial aquifer recharge is the enhancement of natural groundwater supplies using man-made conveyances such as infiltration basins, field flooding, infiltration galleries or injection wells.

Often, AR is conducted to improve groundwater resources (i.e. increasing storage) and is often incorporated into a broader water resource plan.

An aquifer is an underground layer of water-bearing permeable rock, rock fractures or unconsolidated materials (gravel, sand, or silt). Groundwater can be extracted using a water study of water flow in aquifers and the characterization of aquifers is called d terms include aquitard, which is a bed of low permeability along an aquifer, and aquiclude (or aquifuge.

Although the state of Texas seems to have finally emerged from drought, it continues to assess the state of its groundwater resources, which remain below normal, according to a University of Texas at Austin analysis of NASA satellite data.

The analysis shows the state lost 84 million acre-feet of water during the peak of the drought and had recovered only roughly 10 percent as of January The Ogallala is one of the world’s largest aquifers consisting of three billion acre feet of water spread out oversquare miles over eight states.

Two-thirds of the volume of water is in Nebraska where in some places the aquifer is more than 1, feet thick. In west Texas the aquifer is not nearly as deep.

Ground water movement studies indicate that a downgradient spacing of 1, feet between injection and production wells would provide a residence time of 2 years.

Injecting or pumping water into an aquifer for storage and use at a later time is known as Aquifer Storage and Recovery, or ASR. This is the concept of ASR: during times of plentiful water, extra water can be withdrawn from a river (or other source) and then injected and stored within an aquifer.

It is one technique that can help to slow depletion of the aquifer. In the opinion of the authors artificial recharge--throughthe modification of playa lakes and the construction of. The Ogallala Aquifer has been relied on by communities in eight states for agriculture, drinking water and industry uses since at least As the water levels have steadily declined, however, there is now a race against the clock to make it sustainable again.

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).

Contributing Zone of Edwards Aquifer. Located north and west of the aquifer in the region referred to as the Edwards Plateau or Texas Hill Country. Largest part of the aquifer spanning sq.

miles. Water in this region travels to recharge zone. 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.

ABSTRACT The effects of major water management practices on the pumping requirement from the Ogallala aquifer are discussed.

Demand on the aquifer may be reduced as much as 15 percent by recycling irrigation. In an extreme case like the Ogallala aquifer under Kansas, Nebraska, and Texas, the annual depletion rate is –% above the replacement rate (Beaumont, ).

If these overdraft rates continue, the Ogallala aquifer is expected to become non-productive by .
