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.
