The Kansas Water Office was pleased to be able to host the ninth annual Governor's Conference on the Future of Water in Kansas virtually in 2020.

Current 2021 planning involves a conference back in Manhattan, KS. Stayed tuned for updates of whether it will be hybrid, virtual or in-person.

The conference brings together scientists, water managers, state and federal officials and legislators, city and county administrators, environmental organizations and citizens who share an interest in Kansas water resources.
