Farmers should track aquifer saturated thickness to plan crops and irrigation

Groundwater-dependent growers should establish monitoring networks early in the water year to quantify saturated thickness before the growing season. A direct relation exists between the saturated thickness of an aquifer and the groundwater volume available for extraction constrained by regulation and/or principles of sustainability. Under natural conditions, the water table of an unconfined aquifer willContinue reading “Farmers should track aquifer saturated thickness to plan crops and irrigation”

The 2019 Texas Drought – Water-Levels Observed in Pumping Wells

In the late summer and early autumn of 2019, Texas experienced severe to extreme drought over portions of Central, Southern, and eastern West Texas Regions. That drought is captured in weekly map images provided by the United States Drought Monitor, through a partnership between the National Drought Mitigation Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, theContinue reading “The 2019 Texas Drought – Water-Levels Observed in Pumping Wells”
