The Kansas Water Office, in coordination with local, state, federal and interstate partners, is developing the 5-year update of the Kansas Water Plan. The Kansas Water Plan is one of the primary tools used by the State of Kansas to address current water resources issues and to plan for future needs. Statutory authority and basic guidance for formulating the Kansas Water Plan is contained in the State Water Resources Planning Act.
The 2020 Update of the Kansas Water Plan will incorporate the Vision for the Future of Water Supply in Kansas (the Vision). The hard work put into the Vision and the goals created through the Vision process will not be forgotten. The Kansas Water Plan will now serve as the implementation plan for the Vision, providing measurements of success towards achieving the goals addressed in Vision, as well as the other water related issues facing Kansans.
