The alluvial aquifers beneath the floodplains of the Mississippi and Missouri rivers are some of Missouri's most valued water resources.

These aquifers are capable of yielding from to more than 2, gallons of water per minute to properly designed and developed wells, and are widely used for municipal water supply and agricultural irrigation. Even so, there’s worry in the South Platte Valley that increased water reuse will mean less water for crops.

“Irrigators and municipalities kind of clash when it comes to thinking that conservation is the way to fix the problems,” says Randy Ray, executive director of the Greeley-based Central Colorado Water Conservancy District.
