Depletion of the Ogallala Aquifer

This paper needs to follow this proposal: A research paper based on the question “Is sustainability possible?” In this case it is the Ogallala Aquifer. The Ogallala Aquifer is a massive underground water reservoir that is crucial to the agriculture of the United States. The reservoir covers a vast area underground of the central great plains. The Ogallala Aquifer supplies water to a large amount of crops located above it. These crops are responsible for feeding much of America. In the past decades, as population grew in the U.S., the demand on food supply also grew. This meant that more crops had to be grown. As a result, the Ogallala Aquifer continues to be pumped of water to this day. The rate at which it is being pumped greatly exceeds the rate at which the water is replenished. This is an alarming problem. The reservoir is a finite resource, just like any other. Can the Ogallala Aquifer continue to be pumped of its water at the current rate? My paper will answer this question. Additionally, I will also explore solutions to the depletion of the reservoir, and what can be done so that the Ogallala continues to feed our nation for many more generations.
The paper needs to have in text citations (MLA Style) It needs a bibliography in MLA style. The paper needs at least five sources.
