Abstract

Water-level measurements were made in about 1,450 observation wells in 34 counties as part of an annual inventory of ground-water conditions in western Kansas. The measurements were made in midwinter, mostly in January 1978, when pumping was minimal and water levels had recovered from the effects of pumping during the previous irrigation season. Tables show the depths to water in 1940 or 1950 (the predevelopment years), 1966 (a year of abnormally high rainfall), 1977, and 1978; water-level changes from 1940-78 or 1950-78 and from 1966-78, and from 1977-78; and average annual changes from 1940-78 or 1950-78 and from 1966-78. Also shown are saturated thicknesses of the deposits in 1940 or 1950 and in 1978 and the amount of change in feet and percentage. (Woodard-USGS)
