Arkansas Natural Resource Commission Releases Groundwater Report
The Arkansas Natural Resources Commission (ANRC) released its 2018 Annual Groundwater Report. The report, which is required by state law, provides an overview and update on the conditions and issues facing Arkansas’s groundwater supply. The report indicated that 2018 was a good year for groundwater supply due to sufficient and timely rainfall, which reduced demand for groundwater. However, the report indicates that groundwater depletion concerns remain significant due to overconsumption, especially in areas identified as critical groundwater areas.
