Abstract:

Written on Water focuses on the Ogallala Aquifer and examines the conflicts, politics, economics and groundwater depletion in the High Plains region. Farmers and communities survive on the precious waters of the aquifer, yet it is being depleted at alarming rates. Since the 1960s, advances in irrigation technology have allowed farmers to transform the "Great American Desert" into their own fertile agricultural oasis. The Ogallala supports over one-fifth of the grain, beef and cotton of the U.S. agricultural economy and over 80 percent of the drinking water for people living in the High Plains. But the Rocky Mountain waters that have fed the Ogallala Aquifer are not being replenished, so essentially the aquifer is being mined.
