KS A-G Heads to Maine for Water Compact Hearing

The state of Kansas has been in a long legal battle with Nebraska and Colorado over water rights to the Republican River. This week, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt is in Maine for a hearing on the water use compact that affects all three states.



Schmidt says the main point of his argument is that states have a hard time planning for the future when they don't know what resources will be available. Schmidt hopes the existing terms of the compact are upheld so that Kansas can get its share of water from the Republican River.
