Scientists Study Ogallala Water Supply Shrinkage
10/25/2010
 

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - America's High Plains are far from

dry, sitting on an underground water stock nearly equal to lakes

Huron and Erie combined.

Despite its vast holdings, the Ogallala Aquifer is losing water,

and scientists are looking for ways to halt that shrinkage and

secure the future of the region's vital agricultural output.

The system includes parts of South Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado,

Nebraska, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.

A $1.2 million, four-year National Science Foundation grant to

Michigan State University aims to help plan for improved management

of the aquifer.

Researchers will review decades of data and examine the

interactions among the region's landscape, atmosphere and

socio-economic systems.
