Ogallala-High Plains Protocol For Areas Outside Groundwater Management District Boundaries
The state water plan outlines the Kansas Department of Agriculture-Division of Water Resources, Basin Management Team has responsibilities in determining hydrologic subunits in areas outside Groundwater Management Districts boundaries. This is in response to declines in water levels and the economic future of the water resource. The tasks described are intended to meet planning and management goals, and focus attention on refining hydrologic subunit boundaries in those areas. The subunits will be based on priority -- high, medium and low -- to assist future work efforts and focus on more detailed water management strategies in higher priority areas while deferring work on the lower priority areas until a later time.
