What's the future of water in Kansas? That's a big question. But the state of Kansas has been working on a 50-year plan to address this complex issue. The Kansas Water Office has been soliciting public input on its latest proposal and not everyone is pleased. Guest Commentator Julene Bair thinks the plan doesn't do enough to conserve water, especially out west, in the Ogallala (OH-guh-lah-lah) Aquifer.
Guest Commentator Julene Bair is a native Kansan and author of the book, The Ogallala Road: A Memoir of Love and Reckoning.
