I will take a look at the paper. It’s good to know that people are thinking seriously about this issue.

Global climate change scenario is causing a complicated and unpredictable weather pattern in many parts of the world and Santa Fe is perhaps no exception. Your comments on Ogallala aquifer are valid and what I gathered from local Hydrogeologist working in Nebraska is also shocking. It is getting depleted due to excessive withdrawal and lacking much needed recharge and citizens are targeting deep aquifers within the Ogallala often extending 1200 feet plus. Ultimately it will be barren and we have to look for alternatives. The consequences related to excessive withdrawal of underground water are certainly forcing many Midwestern and rocky mountain regions to explore deep into the aquifer which is very costly and not always yielding safe water, often associated with high chlorides or other dissolved ions deposited within the formation water during entrapment of water within the porous sediments. In addition, leaving aquifer unreplenished has serious detrimental ecological and landscape obliteration aspects such as subsidence, generation of mild earthquakes, local-scale desertification, etc. I would like to recommend the following conference paper as a reminder to all of us in connection with this topic.
