Stakeholders to examine the future of state’s water supply

The Osage County Conservation District and Osage County Farm Bureau will host a Vision for the Future of Water in Kansas meeting at 7 p.m. March 13 at the USDA Service Center, 115 W. 17th St., Lyndon. A member of the Kansas Water Office will be presenting and facilitating the discussion.

Governor Sam Brownback charged his administration to lead a coordinated outreach throughout the state to get feedback from the many stakeholders representing all users of water. Feedback gained from stakeholder meetings will serve the basis of the draft Vision for the Future of Water in Kansas.

“Osage County has two federal reservoirs so it is imperative that we make our voice heard,” said Lori Kuykendall, of Osage County Conservation District.

Representatives from rural water districts, city water plants, county government, county agencies and community members are encouraged to attend and provide feedback.
