Groundwater Levels Decline in Western, Central Kansas

The Kansas Geological Survey (KGS), based at the University of Kansas, and the Division of Water Resources (DWR) of the Kansas Department of Agriculture, measured groundwater level in approximately 1,400 water wells in early 2015 as part of a program to monitor the health and sustainability of the state’s most important groundwater resources. According to preliminary data, the average groundwater levels in western Kansas continued to decline in 2014 but at a slower rate than over the past four years. Levels in central Kansas declined in 2014 after increases in 2013. Read more at the University of Kansas website.
