Presented by Brock Ternes

Extreme droughts and heat waves have stressed water supplies in Kansas, making the state increasingly reliant on its underground reserves of freshwater. Growing demand is now tapping aquifers beyond their natural rates of replenishment. This presentation explores the environmental awareness of Kansas well owners and their interconnectedness to and sense of stewardship toward the Ogallala Aquifer. It also describes the public's opinion of the proposed Kansas Aqueduct, the massive waterworks project aiming to divert millions of acre-feet of water from the Missouri River to western Kansas.
