More On The Ogallala Aquifer

You have to go to YouTube to watch this video, but it is worth it.

After my discussion with Tim yesterday about irrigation, I wanted to revisit the topic of this aquifer. Its fascinating to me that here in the middle of the country, farmers need permits to draw from the Ogallala. But, if I understand this issue correctly, in California there is no permit required on private land to tap aquifers. Sounds wrong (California regulates everything!) but it may reflect the power the agriculture industry has in the state.
