Governor Laura Kelly appoints Allen Roth, Hays, to the Kansas Water Authority
The water authority advises the governor, the Legislature and the director of the Kansas Water Office (KWO) on water policy issues — including the approval of the Kansas Water Plan and revisions, federal contracts, administration regulations and legislation proposed by the KWO.
“The Kansas Water Authority is comprised of such an important and knowledgeable group of individuals,” Kelly said. “Mr. Roth has demonstrated a commitment to our state’s natural resources as a producer and with roles he has served on the conservation and extension district and is an ideal candidate to join this board.”
Mr. Roth dry-land farms full-time near Hays and has a BS and MS in Computer Science from K-State. He has served 18 years on the Ellis County Conservation District Board of Supervisors; 6 years on the Kansas Association of Conservation Districts Board of Directors as well as the Smoky Hill – Saline Regional Advisory Committee since its inception; and on the Cottonwood Extension District Board of Directors.
