Small Central Kansas Town Struggles with Water Quality

The south-central Kansas town of Pretty Prairie – population 680 – had a moment in the spotlight during the confirmation hearings for Scott Pruitt, the new head of the Environmental Protection Agency.  Kansas Senator Jerry Moran mentioned Pretty Prairie as an example of a community that’s struggling under EPA regulations that Pruitt could ease.  But, as Alex Smith reports, residents of the town are also concerned that federal budget cuts might affect their ability to pay for a water treatment system.  

Alex Smith is a reporter for KCUR Radio in Kansas City and a contributor to the Kansas News Service.
