— January 30, 2018

The AMP has collaborated with Northeastern SWCD to characterize and map sources of groundwater in the Ogallala and deep bedrock aquifers in east-central Union County. Limited water resources from these border aquifers are supporting the Village of Clayton, as well as rural ranch communities and center-pivot agriculture in New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma.

Funded by the Aquifer Mapping Program, the Bureau of Geology, Northeastern SWCD and Healy Foundation.
