KS Geological Survey to Check Well Water Levels

KGSAfter the first of the year, the Kansas Geological Survey will sample wells in the western part of the state to check groundwater levels. In past years, water levels in some parts of Kansas have dropped significantly. Brownie Wilson is with the Kansas Geological Survey. He says disappearing groundwater can have a financial impact on water users in Kansas.

The water levels dropping are caused by increased water use and by the multi-year drought that is affecting the state. The survey will include more than 500 wells in central and western Kansas.
