Brownback Visits Kickapoo Reservation on Drought Tour

kickapoo outline

Kansas Governor Sam Brownback visited the Kickapoo Reservation this (WED) afternoon as part of his statewide tour of areas hit hard by drought. Tribal chairman Steve Cadue says the visit underscores the gravity of the water shortage situation in that part of the state:

Cadue says that the reservation has been operating under mandatory water conservation measures, and most people in the area are complying.

While at the north-central Kansas reservation, Brownback was scheduled to meet with tribal officials to help work out a water contingency plan, in case the flow of the Delaware River...the primary source for the Kickapoo reservation's water...does not improve in the near future.
