Aquifer Depletion and the Cost of Water Conservation: The Southern High Plains of Texas Case AgEcon
Wheeler, Erin A.; Segarra, Eduardo; Johnson, Phillip N.; Willis, David B.; Johnson, Jeffrey W..
Irrigated agriculture has played a vital role in the development and growth of the Great Plains Region of the United States. The primary source of water for irrigation in this region is the Ogallala Aquifer. The Southern portion of the Ogallala Aquifer is considered exhaustible due to the low level of recharge relative to the quantities of water pumped. Analysis and evaluation of water conservation policies which could extend the economic life of the Ogallala Aquifer in the Southern High Plains of Texas and Eastern New Mexico, and which could contribute to maintaining the viability of the regional economy is important. This study evaluates the impacts of water conservation policies which limit drawdown of the Ogallala Aquifer. County level dynamic...

Economic Efficiency of Short-Term Versus Long-Term Water Rights Buyouts AgEcon
Wheeler, Erin A.; Golden, Bill B.; Johnson, Jeffrey W.; Peterson, Jeffrey M..
Because of the decline of the Ogallala Aquifer, water districts, regional water managers, and state water officers are becoming increasingly interested in conservation policies. This study evaluates both short-term and long-term water rights buyout policies. This research develops dynamic production functions for the major crops in the Texas Panhandle. The production functions are incorporated into optimal temporal allocation models that project annual producer behavior, crop choices, water use, and aquifer declines over 60 years. Results suggest that long-term buyouts may be more economically efficient than short-term buyouts.

Policy Alternatives for the Southern Ogallala Aquifer AgEcon
Wheeler, Erin A.; Segarra, Eduardo; Johnson, Phillip N.; Johnson, Jeffrey W.; Willis, David B..
Due to declining water levels in the Ogallala Aquifer, policy alternatives for extending the life of the aquifer for irrigation and other purposes are evaluated. The study concludes that blanket water conservation policies for the region are likely to be inefficient because of economic and hydrologic differences in the region.
