The system is vast, and yet shallow. The system covers a distance of over 450,000 kms, and it runs across eight states (Ashworth, 15). These states are Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska, and South Dakota. The Aquifer produces 30% of the underground water used for irrigation, and serves 82% of people living within the system.
