Kansas Water Needs Require Funding

KSAL StaffMarch 15, 2014

Authorities trying to establish a plan for dealing with dwindling water resources in Kansas say it’s unclear how much the state wants to spend on solving the problem.

Gov. Sam Brownback in October called for development of a 50-year plan for water in Kansas that would meet residents’ needs and extend the life of the Ogallala High Plains Aquifer. Since then, officials from the Kansas Water Office, the Kansas Department of Agriculture and Kansas Water Authority have held nearly 100 sessions and met with more than 4,500 people across Kansas to discuss water.

Earl Lewis, assistant director of the Kansas Water Office, said that any possible solutions cost money, and it’s unclear how much the state wants to spend to tackle the problem.
