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.

Ready to roll up your sleeves?

Our next board meeting will be held in the GMD3 Board Room (2009 E Spruce Street, Garden City) January 10 at 9 AM CST.

Board Meetings are typically held the 2nd Wednesday of every month.



The next Western Water Conservation Projects Funds Committee meeting will be announced at a later date.
