Public Hearing Scheduled for Proposed Conservation Regulations

A public hearing will be conducted at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, April 26, 2018. The hearing will be held in room 124 on the first floor of the Kansas Department of Agriculture, 1320 Research Park Dr. in Manhattan, Kansas.

The Kansas Sediment and Nutrient Reduction Initiative consists of new requirements for the Kansas Water Quality Initiative. K.A.R. 11-13-1 through 11-13-6 sets the requirements for receiving a state incentive payment made to participants to supplement federal payments for certain conservation areas.

The regulations can be found at the KDA website, agriculture.ks.gov/ProposedRegs. Comments can be submitted prior to the hearing at that webpage as well.

All interested persons may attend the hearing and will be given the opportunity to express comments either orally or in writing, or both. Interested parties may appear in person or by counsel. Persons who require special accommodations must make their needs known at least five days prior to the hearing. For more information, including special accommodations or a copy of the regulations, please contact Ronda Hutton, 785-564-6715.
