Abstract

Water-level measurements were made in about 1,300 observation wells in 35 counties as part of an annual inventory of ground-water conditions in western and south-central Kansas. The measurements were made in mid-winter, mostly in January 1979, when pumping was minimal and water levels had recovered from the effects of pumping during the previous irrigation season. Tables in this report show the depths to water in 1940, 1944, or 1950 (the predevelopment years), 1966 (a year of abnormally high rainfall), 1978 and 1979; water-level declines from 1940-79, or 1950-79, from 1966-79, 1974-79, or 1978-79; and average annual declines from 1940-79, 1944-79, or 1950-79 and from 1966-79. Also shown are saturated thicknesses of the deposits in 1940, 1944, or 1950 and in 1979, as well as the percentage change in saturated thickness from 1940-79, 1944-79, or 1950-79. (Kosco-USGS)
