Statewide water group will discuss ‘vision’ at Hays meeting


The Governor’s Water Vision Team will have a public meeting at 10 a.m. March 10 at Fort Hays State University’s Sternberg Museum of Natural History.

The meeting is a chance for residents, city and county officials, and local stakeholder groups to share their priorities with the Vision Team to ensure Hays and regional neighbors have a reliable long-term water supply.

“The drought over the past three years has brought water issues to the forefront and Kansas must plan for the future now,” said Kansas Water Office Director Tracy Streeter. “This region has done a nice job of developing regional water supplies and identifying opportunities for new sources of water. We want all Kansans to be part of Kansas’ water solution and look forward to working with this region.”
