      Records date from to Records are from the High Plains-Ogallala Aquifer Area Study and were produced by the High Plains Study Council, the High Plains Liaison Committee, and the various Texas state agencies that had responsibility for investigations related to groundwater, primarily the Texas Department of Water Resources. The High Plains Water-Level Monitoring Study (HPWLMS) is the USGS's response to a directive from Congress to report on water-level changes in the High Plains [Ogallala] aquifer. Figure 1. Location map showing the boundary of the High Plains aquifer, major cities and roads, and altitude of land surface.

      Hydrologic separation beneath most of the Southern High Plains is indicated by (1) hydraulic heads of Lower Dockum Group ground water that are to ft (90 to m)lower than the water table of the High Plains aquifer, (2) δ 18 O and δD values of Lower Dockum Group ground water that are 2 to 3 ‰ and 15 to 25 ‰ lighter, respectively Price: $2. Irrigation has developed slower in the northern High Plains than in the southern High Plains; therefore, at the current rate of withdrawal, the remaining water in storage will be adequate for many years. The southern High Plains is the area of largest ground-water develop- ment in Texas.

      Ecosystem services are benefits people derive from resources in ecosystems. Playa lakes in the Southern High Plains region of North America provide several ecosystem services for humans, including recharge to the Ogallala aquifer. The Ogallala aquifer occupies , km2, it is part of eight states, and provides irrigation water to over 25% of the irrigated land in the United by: 1.

The High Plains of Texas are noted for their abundant supply of ground water. All the water for public and industrial supplies and nearly all that used on farms and ranches comes from wells, and in parts of the region irrigation on a large scale is accomplished with water from by: The evaluation of ground-water resources in the southern High Plains of Texas is in response to the passage ofHouse Bi by the Sixty-ninth Texas Legislature, which called for the identification and study of areas in the State that are experiencing or are expected to experience critical underground water problems within the next 20 Size: 8MB.

The Panhandle Plains are part of an ecological region of international significance. Scattered across the southern high plains of Texas, New Mexico, Kansas, Oklahoma and Colorado are more t playa lakes -- havens for wildlife and people.

Playas are simple depressions in a prairie or plain where rainwater collects. The Southern High Plains of Texas occupies an area of ab square miles in n'Orthwest Texas, extending fr'Om the Canadian River southward.

Consumer Confidence Reports. By the early ’s, it became clear that the aquifer was declining significantly in the Southern High Plains region, most notably in Texas.

Due to heavier use and highly inefficient irrigation methods that began aboutand a lack of adequate recharge to replenish the aquifer’s supply, better water management practices to extend this. This report gives a summarized description of the public water supplies in 42 counties of southern Texas, extending from the Rio Grande northward to the northern boundaries of Kinney, Uvalde, Bandera, Kendall, and Hays Counties and eastward to the eastern boundaries of Caldwell, Gonzales, DeWitt, Victoria, and Calhoun Counties.

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.
