The late Joseph Poland, a legendary hydrologist with the U.S. Geological Survey who helped develop many of today’s scientific theories of groundwater and subsidence, discovered that during the California drought of , groundwater levels.

These aquifers receive recharge at a rate of 80, ML/ yr and they are being pumped at a rate of , ML/yr. This means that overall the system is losing water causing a decline in groundwater levels that affects users in the lower and middle aquifers.

During rainfall events, the aquifers in Puerto Rico capture a small fraction of the rainfall and sometimes can store it for years. Organic pollutants are degraded over time by microbial and chemical processes. The shorter the travel time between raindrop and aquifer recharge the greater is the risk of contamination.

Ground water is a source of sustenance for people, agriculture and industry worldwide, and as populations grow and economies develop, we increasingly draw on those stores of water beneath the surface. Our needs for water grow each year.

But ground water is a finite resource, one that in some places is strained to the limit. Potentiometric surface of the principal alluvial aquifers in the Rio Espiritu Santo to Rio Demajagua area, Puerto Rico, U.S.

Geological Survey. Water-Resources Investigations Report Puerto Rico Water Resources and Environmental Research Institute,   The report entitled Estimated Withdrawals from Principal Aquifers in the United States,provides details of ground water withdrawals and use from principal aquifers in each state.

The USGS found that more than 90 percent of ground water withdrawals are used for irrigation, public supply (deliveries to homes, businesses and industry), and.Ogallala Aquifer of the central United States is one of the world's great aquifers, but in places it is being rapidly depleted by growing municipal use, and continuing agricultural use.

This huge aquifer, which underlies portions of eight states, contains primarily fossil water from the time of the last recharge, in the more arid parts of the aquifer, is estimated to total.
