Heat, Drought Creating Water Problems for Kickapoo Tribe in Kansas

The recent triple-digit temperatures and drought conditions could cause a water shortage for the Kickapoo Tribe in Kansas. Tribe members get their water from the Delaware River in northeast Kansas, but the river level is dropping because of the drought. Tribal Chairman Steve Cadue (cuh-DOO) says they may have to ration water.

Cadue says if the drought persists, they will have to bring in water by truck from a treatment plant in Atchison, more than 30 miles away.
