  1. 0 Votes

    The earthquake in Japan caused the walls of the Edwards aquifer in Texas to contract and expand. About a foot of water was also displaced because of the squeeze the underground rock was place under by the earthquakes energy. Aquifers act like seismographs with the water oscillating and shooting up and down as the energy from the earthquake moves throughout the earth’s crust.

    The Edwards aquifer sits under central texas providing drinking water for 1.7 million people, includes those in San Antonio.
