“We encourage anyone to attend who has an interest in our state’s water resources. Legislators, water managers, state, federal, city and county officials, as well as scientists, organizations and agricultural producers, are all welcome,” said Tracy Streeter Kansas Water Office Director. “Kansas must continue to prioritize our commitment to creating a future that provides safe and reliable sources of water to households, cities, industries, producers, and the list goes on. Dedication to our water resources is critical and necessary for each and every one of us.”
The conference takes place Nov. 13-14 at the Hilton Inn Conference Center in Manhattan, Kansas.
Speakers will include water managers, public officials and more from Texas, Nebraska and Kansas. On day two, discussions will expand on day one topics, such as water policy and conservation efforts. Kansas State University graduate students will also present research.
