A Report on the Conference on the Science and Technology of Cloud Seeding in the Black Hills
AbstractThe past few years have seen a diminishing water supply in the Black Hills of western South Dakota and eastern Wyoming. Water levels in the reservoirs in the region have decreased to less than 50% of capacity, some as low as 10%. This causes great concern about future agricultural and municipal water supplies in the area, particularly in light of the fact that the Black Hills are a water resource for an area much more extensive than the Hills themselves. Plans are underway by various groups to drill wells, repair irrigation ditches, improve conservation methods, and study and define more precisely the surface and ground water characteristics of the Hills.
