Kansas Coal Plant Could Lead To Water Battle
09/06/2010

A western Kansas utility's push to build a new coal-fired power plant could touch off a battle over water.

Hays-based Sunflower Electric Power Corp. estimates that its new

plant in Finney County in southwest Kansas will consume 3.9 billion

gallons of water a year.

Most of the electricity generated by Sunflower's new plant

initially would flow to a partner utility in Colorado. That's

leading critics to suggest Kansas will be exporting water.

Farmers who previously held the rights to the water Sunflower

wants to use would have been allowed to consume significantly more

water.

Eventually, the project will need a water-use permit from the

Kansas Department of Agriculture.
