AMARILLO -- The High Plains Underground Water Conservation District is in our area checking water levels.
They're looking at the effect of pumping water from the Ogallala Aquifer within 16 counties.
The HPWD is trying to figure out what level private water wells are operating at throughout the district.
Each year, representatives mark the levels to determine changes from year to year.
