Four State residents discuss future of Kansas water with state leaders


Southeast Kansas residents met Thursday with state leaders to discuss the future of Kansas water.

The state's "Vision Team" consists of the Kansas Water Office, Department of Agriculture and Water Authority.  The team met with city and county leaders, as well as area land-owners at Pittsburg's memorial auditorium, to gather input for developing a "vision" for Kansas water.

Agriculture officials say the drought over the past three-years has brought water issues to the forefront, and Kansans must plan for the future now.

"Receiving input from the stake holders is a critical part of developing this vision," says Susan Metzger of the Kansas Water Office.  "Every citizen in the state has a role in developing the vision because we are all water users and we all benefit by ensuring we have a future water supply for the state."

Feedback from Thursday's meeting will go towards the governor's call to action for a 50-year vision plan for Kansas water.
