Citation Excerpt: The Committee recognizes that the High Plains Aquifer, with the Ogallala Aquifer as its most important component, lies beneath eight States and is the primary source of water for all reported uses in western Kansas. The Committee is aware that the aquifer is depleting at alarming rates and absent conservation efforts could be dry within two decades. The Committee urges the agency to give consideration to the use of ground and surface water funding for projects in Kansas that will conserve this aquifer.
