Kansas Officials Say Water Supplies Remain Low

KSCB News - December 21, 2012 5:55 am

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – Gov. Sam Brownback says Kansas farmers, ranchers and communities should review their water use and conservation plans as drought conditions persist.

Brownback received an update Thursday on the drought and steps being taken around the state to maintain adequate water levels.

Officials said water supplies remain critically low, especially at the 24 federal reservoirs around the state. Several are more than 30 percent below normal levels. The officials noted that the John Redmond Reservoir in east-central Kansas is at 46 percent capacity.

Brownback says it’s difficult to predict when the drought will end. He urged water users to update any conservation or emergency plans should conditions worsen.
