Large underground aquifers exist today that may represent remnants of the waters that burst forth during the global flood
. One of the largest known aquifers is known as the High Plains Aquifer (Ogallala aquifer). The Ogallala is an ancient, non-replenishing body of water that supplies nearly one third of the water used for irrigation in the US. The aquifer lies beneath 8 states in the U.S.
and occupies some 175,000 square miles. More than 5 trillion gallons of water are pumped from the aquifer each year.
