Faucet Flickr photo by Ben McLeodFlickr photo by Ben McLeodState officials say they’re ready to assist the Kickapoo Tribe in Kansas if drought conditions continue. The tribe’s sole source of water is the Delaware River in northeast Kansas, but it’s drying up because of the drought. Governor Sam Brownback and other state officials visited the reservation this week to see the situation first hand. Kansas Adjutant General Lee Tafanelli says they’re currently helping the tribe assess the situation.

Tafanelli says the state is ready to help transport water to the tribe if the drought worsens.
