Brownback To Sign Water Legislation

KSCB News - April 16, 2012 8:19 am

Gov. Sam Brownback travels to northwestern

Kansas this week to sign legislation intended to help conserve and

extend the Ogallala Aquifer.

At a ceremony Tuesday in Colby, Brownback will sign a bill that

amends the Groundwater Management District Act to allow for

creation of local enhanced management areas. The intent is to

encourage more local action on saving water.

Brownback proposed several measures this year to promote water

conservation. He has already signed bills easing restrictions on

use of water rights and giving rights holders more flexibility in

managing their allotments over several years.
