Abstract

Groundwater mining is inadequately addressed by state and federal policies in the United States. New Mexico's failure to manage groundwater aquifers has resulted in costly federal rescue projects. Better information and involvement of communities in groundwater policy would provide for more sustainable use of this resource.
