The Southwest Kansas Groundwater Management District (GMD3) is located in the heart of the irrigation/agri-business, industrial complex overlying the Ogallala Aquifer.

The district was organized to conserve groundwater resources, prevent economic deterioration, and provide for the stabilization of agriculture by establishing the right of local users to determine their own destiny with respect to the use of groundwater.
