Long-Term Vision for the Future of Water Supply in Kansas

In response to Governor Sam Brownback's charge to create a 50-year water vision in Kansas, the Kansas Department of Agriculture partnered with the Kansas Water Office, Kansas Water Authority, Kansas Department of Health and Environment, Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, and the Governor’s Council of Economic Advisors to develop the Vision for the Future of Water Supply in Kansas. The full vision document can be found here: Kansas Water Vision.

In response to Phase I action items of the Vision, KDA coordinated five Water Vision Education and Outreach Working Group meetings in 2016 to identify needs, develop statewide education and outreach materials, and implement tangible action steps to help all Kansans understand the importance of water and water issues in the state. If you are interested in finding out more information about the work developed by the Education and Outreach Working Groups, contact Dana Ladner at 785-564-6660 or Dana.Ladner@ks.gov.
