Irrigation in Kansas

Date and Time: July 21, 2019, 1:30 PM CT

Location: Stafford County Museum Library, 100 N Main St, Stafford
(view on google maps)

Presented by Jay Antle

Irrigation has made Kansas an agricultural powerhouse, but it has also opened the floodgates for unintended consequences such as lawsuits, soil salinity, water scarcity, and continually larger, more ambitious irrigation plans. From ditches in Garden City, to center-pivot units across the state, to new plans to divert Missouri River water to Goodland, this presentation will encourage Kansans to consider how the past can inform present-day discussions of water usage in the state.
