Mark Rude will be presenting the following on Friday: 9:30 a.m. Water for the Future of Kansas with Mark Rude and Chris Wilson
It is the belief of the Kansas Aqueduct Coalition that a properly developed Kansas Aqueduct Project process is a necessary element in securing economic stability and prosperity for the entire state of Kansas. According to the group, an action to reserve a 4 million acre feet amount early in that process rather than a person or Coalition filing an appropriation is an appropriate and necessary legislative action for Kansas. The revenues generated from agriculture in the western half of the state, and specifically in the areas served by the Ogallala Aquifer, are significant. A significant decline or decimation of those revenues would likely result in economic devastation for the entire state and, on a lesser level, the surrounding states. Kansas is respected as historically being progressive and forward-thinking in its use of water resources and this situation should be no different. The coalition feels the state of Kansas must act now to prepare for the future so as to avoid a water crisis that is almost certainly on the horizon.
