Southwestern wells running dry due to drought; foreign-owned farms using U.S. water to feed cattle for export


The company is rapidly pulling water out of an aquifer in the area that normally is still, but that is now moving due to the sheer volume of water being pulled. ... The Al Dahra farm, he says, is “pumping and it was sucking the water through the aquifer.” "...

California farmers now flooding crop fields to allow aquifers to recharge


The aquifer may be drying up. In fact, California has permanently lost around 6 trillion gallons of water over the last century. ... Most of the water sitting on the land naturally drained into the aquifer, and the vines survived. "...

NBC News declares 'billions could starve' as America's water aquifers run dry


In America, a crisis is unfolding right under the public's feet. ... The vital Ogallala Aquifer is drying up, putting billions of people at risk The Ogallala Aquifer, sprawled out beneath eight states in the heart of the US, is being depleted with mathematical certainty. "...

Drought COMPLETELY dries up largest permanent lagoon in Spain's Andalucia region


The lagoons, borne from the discharge of water from the region’s Doñana aquifer, is home to several strictly aquatic species of flora and fauna. ... The huge empty areas around the 2,409-square kilometers aquifer, however, may serve as a more serious warning. "...

Martha's Vineyard illegals were shipped off to a Superfund contamination site


According to the EPA, JBCC is located over an aquifer that provides drinking water for 200,000 permanent residents and 500,000 seasonal residents of Cape Cod. Fuel spills and other activities at Camp Edwards and Otis Air National Guard Base, administered by the Massachusetts Army National Guard and Air National Guard, respectively, have caused parts of the aquifer to be contaminated and thus be designated as Superfund sites. "...

Researchers discover huge freshwater pocket off the East Coast, beneath the sea coast


An aquifer is an underground layer of water. This particular aquifer’s exact size is still unclear, but the researchers believe it has the potential to be the largest known aquifer to date. ... The entire aquifer may contain at least 670 cubic miles of water. Scientists have theorized about the aquifer for decades Many scientists have believed that an aquifer was located off the northeastern coast of the United States since at least the 1970s....

Climate change blamed for drying of Great Plains streams, but it's actually caused by groundwater pumping for irrigation


Though climate change often gets blamed for turning creeks into dry riverbeds, the water needed to irrigate one sixth of the world’s grain production comes from the High Plains Aquifer, also known as the Ogallala Aquifer. ... As more water is being pumped out every year, only a small amount flows back into the aquifer from rain and snow. "...

Aquifers poisoned with drugs, chemicals and pesticides threaten Mexico's Riviera Maya


Researchers have discovered that prescription and street drugs, chemicals from shampoo and toothpaste, pesticides, chemical run-off from highways and many other pollutants have infiltrated the giant aquifer under the Riviera Maya. ... But water coming from the crucial Riviera Maya aquifer is quickly turning toxic. "...

Is there arsenic in your water? A new report claims domestic well water could be poisoning 2 million people


Environmental Protection Agency Maximum Contaminant Level of 10 micrograms per liter in about 7 percent of wells nationally and were found at these concentrations in wells from several aquifer types.” ... Symptoms to watch out for include shortness of breath and blue baby syndrome; - Uranium: Aquifer materials release uranium into well water. "...

Americans are now drinking biosludge water recycled from raw human sewage


This differs from indirect potable reuse, where water spends time in a substantial environmental barrier such as an underground aquifer or in a reservoir. ... Still, it then goes into an ‘environmental buffer’ like an underground aquifer, where it can spend months or even years undergoing further filtration. "...

In-ground wastewater disposal contaminates environment with mercury


The site consists of a 3-kilometer area where contaminants seep and interact freely, traveling about 200 meters every year through an aquifer that pours out into a coastal saltwater pond. ... "What it looks like is, the mercury that was already there in the aquifer or sand is being mined out when the groundwater goes anoxic," said Lamborg. "...

Study reveals that microplastics are even found in groundwater sources such as fractured limestone aquifers


The researchers collected 17 groundwater samples from wells and springs, 11 of which came from a highly fractured limestone aquifer near the St. Louis metropolitan area and the other six from an aquifer in rural northwestern Illinois, which contained much smaller fractures. "...

How California's extreme drought will lead to a wave of earthquakes


A cohort of researchers determined that, based on the fault slip pattern and movement of land at the surface, changes in aquifer volumes were the most likely cause of the quake. "The area of fault slip correlates well with the pattern of positive Coulomb stress change that we calculate to result from the extraction of groundwater in a nearby basin aquifer," wrote the authors of a study published in the journal Nature Geoscience. "...

Mexico City sinking at "unstoppable rate" of up to 20 inches a year, study finds


The aquifer system beneath the metro was 17 percent compacted as of 2020. After analyzing more than a century of data, including recent satellite information, researchers predicted that the aquifer system would compact further to 30 percent, causing the metro to sink almost 100 feet in the next century. ... Over time, over-pumping dramatically reduced groundwater levels, drying out the aquifer system and causing it to compact. "...

After the water is gone, the soil is gone, the crops are gone and the superweeds take over, how exactly will Americans feed their families?

Artificial Sweeteners Stay in the Water Supply


"The persistence of some artificial sweeteners during soil aquifer treatment was demonstrated and confirmed their environmental relevance", wrote the scientific team in the journal Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, before expressing concern that "the occurrence of such sweeteners in the aquatic environment may become an issue for consumers." [1] The study authors cited the lack of research on the levels of artificial sweeteners in water as being a motivating factor behind their investigation....
