      Groundwater age is defined as the time between recharge at the water table to the time when groundwater was sampled. Groundwater age estimates are based on concentrations of environmental tracers (i.e., tracers derived from the atmosphere, as opposed to artificial tracers) in groundwater. High Plains Aquifer SystemGroundwater Availability Model (GAM). In July , the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) contracted with INTERA, Inc. to develop a groundwater availability model (GAM) for the High Plains Aquifer System (Ogallala Aquifer, Dockum Aquifer, Edwards-Trinity (High Plains) Aquifer, and Rita Blanca Aquifer).The project was completed .

    The study area includes the High Plains, Northern Great Plains, the Central Texas Carbonates, and parts of the Central Midwest Regional Aquifer Systems as described by the U.S. Geological Survey Regional Aquifer-System Analysis (RASA) Program (Sun, , p.5and Sun, personal commun., June ) and shown in figures 1 through 5. Estimation of the Water Balance Using Observed Soil Water in the Nebraska Sandhills This study also suggests that the High Plains aquifer possibly met the plant water requirement during this deficit period as well as during the soil water extraction period, from May through September.

[Robert A Pettijohn; Hsiu-Hsiung Chen; Geological Survey (U.S.)]. Nebraska is a groundwater-rich state. Nebraska has one primary aquifer, the High Plains Aquifer, and seven secondary aquifers. These secondary aquifers supply water to more than active wells spread across 30 counties.

There are at least seven major aquifer systems in Nebraska. By far, the High Plains/Ogallala aquifer is the largest in terms of volume of water in storage and withdrawals for irrigation.

Several secondary aquifers exist in areas outside of the High Plains aquifer, providing water for irrigation, municipal supplies, and domestic use in parts of far western and far eastern.

The High Plains Aquifer system Hydrologic setting. Recharge of the enormous aquifer is attained through precipitation on a large-scale, and more by streams and canals locally.

A huge drop in the holding capacities and generalized water levels throughout the region can be seen in the last several decades due to increased irrigation (Figure 3). Our Nebraska Water Science Center priority is to continue the important work of the Department of the Interior and the USGS, while also maintaining the health and safety of our employees and community.

Based on guidance from the White House, the CDC, and state and local authorities, we are shifting our operations to a virtual mode and have minimal staffing within our offices.

Data utilized in preparing an interpretive hydrogeologic report on the Dakota aquifer system in Nebraska are summarized. The study area is asq mi area that includes all of Kansas and Nebraska and parts of Arkansas, Colorado, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas. The broad objective for each Regional Aquifer-System analysis (RASA) study is to assemble.

SEWARD NEBRASKA COUNTY U.S. Department of the Interior U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Report – Prepared in cooperation with the City of Seward, Nebraska Ground-Water Age and Quality in the High Plains Aquifer near Seward, Nebraska, – Sectionof the Nebraska statutes gives the DNR responsibility for conducting the State Water Planning and Review Process.

The statutory purpose of the planning process is to coordinate and direct the planning efforts of the state agencies and the university divisions with responsibilities and interest in the water resources field.

Most Nebraskans likely are familiar with the High Plains aquifer, one of the largest aquifers in the world, and the primary source of water for many Nebraskans. But for those living in eastern Nebraska and in portions of the panhandle where the High Plains aquifer is absent, secondary aquifers are crucial sources of water for life.

Publications. Reports for the High Plains Water-Level Monitoring Study (HPWLMS) were generated annually from to and generally every two years from to to report water-level changes in the High Plains aquifer from predevelopment to the reporting year.

Hydrologic Report North Plains GCD completes hydrology reports on an annual basis. The North Plains Groundwater Conservation District has completed a general information hydrologic report on the District’s regional hydrology and groundwater resources.

The report is available each summer for the preceding calendar year. In Colorado, foot contours were digitized from abase map (Borman and Meredith, ).

In Nebraska, the foot contours and aquifer boundaries were digitized from a series ofworking maps for the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Regional Aquifer System Analysis (RASA) of the High Plains aquifer in Nebraska. The High Plains Aquifer Information Network was a project of the KGS and K-State to collect information sources on the High Plains/Ogallala Aquifer systems.
