City Officials Review Water Options To Develop New Conservation Strategies

Apr 8, 2014

Wichita officials will review the city’s water options for new supplies and conservation.

A workshop on Tuesday at City Hall will include presentations from utility employees on strategies for ensuring a stable water supply through 2060.

Some of those include revamped programs to reduce water usage and adding new sources of water.

The city says some of the conservation options include:

  • A modified rebate program, education, and mailing residents about leak repairs.
  • Studies about outdoor water conservation and re-use in industrial processes.
  • Potential new water sources include El Dorado Lake and re-using non-potable treated wastewater.
