Kansas Water Office Projects

During the development of the Long-Term Vision for the Future of Water Supply in Kansas (the Vision), four themes emerged; Water Conservation, Water Management, Technology and Crop Variety and Additional Sources of Supply. These themes and the strategies within them are carried through to the current water planning process. Projects are divided into these categories, which cover both statewide and region-specific initiatives.
