Environmental coordination notices

ECA Certification

The Water Projects Environmental Coordination Act, K.S.A. 82a-325 to 327, requires an environmental review of Kansas water projects. Basically, this means that reviewers are given the opportunity to suggest ways that projects may be modified to minimize or mitigate impacts before a water development project is approved or permited. 

This Act requires Division of Water Resources to provide seven agencies with permit applications to review and comment. These agencies receive the application for review:

  • Kansas Department of Wildlife Parks and Tourism
  • Kansas Biological Survey
  • Kansas Corporation Commission 
  • Kansas State Historical Society
  • Kansas Department of Health and Environment 
  • Division of Conservation (former State Conservation Commission)
  • Kansas Forest Service

To view this current list of projects under our initial review process, you must be registered. If you do not have a user name and password and wish to access ECA pages, register above or fill out an Open Records Request form or contact 785-564-6654.

You must be registered to view ECA Notices that are the current list of projects under our initial review process.

If building a structure, consider asking these agencies for assistance.
