I personally found this article pretty interesting because I live right over the Ogallala Aquifer in Nebraska. The article talks about how our supply of underwater aquifers are running out due to excess use for irrigation. Researchers have found that “if current irrigation trends continue unabated, 69 percent of the available groundwater will be drained in the next five decades”. The article also discusses how the signs that the water levels are going down are pretty ambiguous because it’s hard to measure what the appropriate water depletion levels should be annually. The reduction of the water level poses a threat to the agriculture businesses all throughout the Great Plains, which accordingly poses a threat to the United State’s food industry. This is the link to the article.
