Digital map of water-level changes in the High Plains aquifer in parts of Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, and Wyoming, predevelopment (about 1950) to 2013

Metadata Updated: April 2, 2024

The High Plains aquifer extends from south of 32 degrees to almost 44 degrees north latitude and from 96 degrees 30 minutes to 104 degrees west longitude. The aquifer underlies about 175,000 square miles in parts of Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, and Wyoming. This dataset consists of a raster of water-level changes for the High Plains aquifer, predevelopment (about 1950) to 2013. This digital dataset was created using water-level measurements from 3,349 wells measured in both the predevelopment period (about 1950) and in 2013 and using other published information on water-level change in areas with few water-level measurements. The map was reviewed for consistency with the relevant data at a scale of 1:1,000,000.
