Irrigation in Kansas

Water 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 centerpivot 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.
