SW Kansas Reservoir Popular Holiday Spot

KSAL StaffJuly 7, 2014

People from as far away as Oklahoma spent part of their holiday weekend at a 5-year-old southwest Kansas reservoir that got a big boost from steady rainfall last week.

HorseThief Reservoir near Jetmore is about 65 percent full after gaining 7 feet last week, drawing people from all around to the few big bodies of water in western Kansas.

Reservoir manager Josh Hobbs says the project was met with a lot of skepticism, but it has shown it has the ability to hold water even in a prolonged drought.

The reservoir is part of the Pawnee Watershed and fed by about 1 million gallons of water a day from Buckner Creek, one of the only live creeks in the region.
