Water is becoming scarce and the demand of irrigation to increase crop yields in the Midwest is taxing one of the largest sources of groundwater, the High Plains Aquifer. How long can the groundwater supply sustain the demand from agriculture and communities?
This Infographic dissects an aquifer to help demonstrate the role of an aquifer in our everyday lives and why we rely on this body of water.
View this animation that dives inside an aquifer and beneath the surface to see groundwater in action.
