Ozark Groundwater Availability Study

Science Center Objects

The U.S. Geological Survey's Groundwater Resources Program (GWRP) is conducting an assessment of groundwater availability throughout the United States to gain a better understanding of the status of the Nation's groundwater resources and how changes in water use and climate may affect those resources. Assessments will be completed for the Nation's principal aquifer systems to help characterize how much groundwater is currently available, how groundwater availability is changing, and how much groundwater we can expect to have in the future (Source: USGS). Groundwater is an important resource in the Ozark Plateaus area, therefore the GWRP is supporting a groundwater availability assessment of the Ozark Plateaus aquifer system beginning in 2014.
