GMD3 Western Water Conservation Projects Fund Activity and Related Concerns in 2020

Identifying Solutions to Challenges

With support from an NRCS Conservation Innovation Grant, Scott installed mobile drop irrigation lines (MDI) on the first three towers of eleven pivots. On those acres where the old drop nozzle packages were replaced with MDI, water use has been reduced by 38%.

Did You Know?

Private well owners are responsible for regularly testing the water they use for household purposes (for drinking, cooking, bathing, laundry, etc.) to ensure that it is safe.

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?

Whether it’s our monthly meetings or our variety of educational events throughout the year, we’d love to have you at any of the regular events Southwest Kansas GMD3 hosts.
