    Many arid areas that are near fossil aquifers use them for drinking water and agriculture, including the Middle East (Libya, Jordan, Saudi Arabia), China, Mexico, the region of the former USSR and the Great Plains region of the U.S.  In the U.S., this aquifer is called Ogallala, which supplies 82% of the drinking water for 8 states as well as 30% of their irrigation needs.  Unfortunately, it is also projected to be depleted in the next 25 years.
