Rain Helping Replenish Kansas Water Supplies

KSAL StaffAugust 1, 2013

The recent spate of wet weather has caused flash floods and other headaches in much of Kansas, but the rain is also replenishing some lakes that communities rely on for water.

In Butler County east of Wichita, Santa Fe Lake and Augusta City Lake both dried up amid severe drought two years ago.

KWCH-TV reports that Santa Fe Lake is now overflowing. Workers are pumping water into a nearby retention pond. Augusta city Lake is also filling back up.

Both lakes help supply water to the cities of Augusta and Mulvane and two rural water districts.

Augusta has had mandatory water restrictions in place, but city officials now plan to review them in the fall.
