Thread Name: Ken Burns's 'The Dust Bowl'
Subject: RE: Ken Burns's 'The Dust Bowl'
I learned about the Ogalallah aquifer in 1970.... they were 'mining water' way before that. Wichita, Kansas used to get almost all of its water from the Equus beds, but had to find other sources when levels dropped too low. Studies being done to see if it can be replenished.
We learn pretty slowly, and often, only when forced to.
