More than 500 people turned out for the first Governor's Conference on the Future of Water in Kansas, and Governor Brownback said the goal is to develop options to meet water needs "30, 40, 50, and even 100 years down the road."
The conference began Tuesday in Manhattan, Kansas. The first day was focused on the latest policy developments on water issues, and day two on Wednesday will deal with the latest research developments.
The conference topics include new ideas to conserve and extend the Ogallala Aquifer in western Kansas, an evaluation of the state's water infrastructure, opportunities to improve water quality in Kansas, and ways to meet water demands for energy and agriculture.
