GRACE is a NASA/German Aerospace Satellite study found this "GRACE findings show that, since the late 1990s, the arid Central Valley has lost about 50 cubic kilometers (12 cubic miles) of groundwater, or 1.5 times the volume of Lake Mead, the largest man-made reservoir in the United States.
In the U.S., we see the Ogallala Aquifer and the Central Valley" Combined these two farm land areas make up 33% of the United States Irrigated farm land. One third of our Nations irrigated food producing land has under ground aquifers which are going dry.
