High Plains Aquifer

Metadata Updated: May 17, 2013

These digital maps contain information on the altitude of the base, the extent, and the 1991 potentiometric surface (i.e. altitude of the water table) of the High Plains aquifer in Kansas. Included in the High Plains aquifer are the Ogallala, Great Bend, and Equus Beds aquifers. The High Plains aquifer consists of unconsolidated Pleistocene, Pliocene, and Miocene silt, clay, sand, and gravel of fluvial and eolian origin and any alluvial deposits directly overlying the unconsolidated Pleistocene, Pliocene, and Miocene deposits. The digital maps were developed from 1:500,000-scale source information. The altitude of the base and potentiometric surface contour interval is 50 feet with supplemental 25 foot contours for potentiometric only.
