Groundwater Decline 3rd Largest In High Plains District's History

The results of water level measurements made during winter show an average decline of -2.56 feet in the groundwater levels of the Ogallala Aquifer within the 16-county High Plains Underground Water Conservation District No. 1 service area in 2011.

A review of available records in the HPWD archives at Lubbock, Texas has documented only two other years since the creation of the water district 61 years ago where recorded average water level declines were greater than those for 2011. In 1964, the average water level decline was -3.99 feet, and in 1966, the average water level decline was -2.92 feet.
