The Kansas High Plains Aquifer: The Future of the Underground Reservoir

A Science on Tap Event
The high plains aquifer is one of the largest and most accessible aquifer systems in the world. In Kansas, it supplies roughly 70% of the water used in the state each day. However, decades of large-volume pumping has led to steady declining water levels across the western portions of the state. Brownie Wilson of the Kansas Geological Survey will review conditions and trends in the aquifer and latest water management efforts to conserve and extend the life of the aquifer. This Science on Tap event will be located at Free State Brewing Co, 636 Massachusetts St.
