  • This graph shows our demand for water compared to water we have now under drought of record conditions. So are we ready for the next drought of record? [click] “nope…” The bad news: we’re not ready. We’re not ready now, and we get less readier [sic] in the future. Note: Water we have now is water with current infrastructure, i.e. no additional wells, reservoirs, pipelines, etc. Note: Decreases in “Water we have now” are due primarily to mining water from the Ogalalla but also due to decreases in other aquifers and sedimentation of our reservoirs.
