The state will have series of 26 public meetings across Kansas this month to set regional water supply goals and priorities.
Trained facilitators from Kansas State University Research and Extension and the Institute for Civic Discourse and Democracy will help facilitate the public meetings.
14 regional water leadership teams will create water supply goals based on public input and available resources.
The regional water supply goals that they draft will be presented to the Kansas Water Authority in May.
The finalized regional goals are expected to be approved in August.
There will be a public meeting in Wichita on March 24, at City Hall at 7 pm. Specific dates and times for the other meetings can be found at http://www.kwo.org/50_Year_Vision/50_Year_Vision.htm
