Despite the relatively wet spring, many parts of the state are still facing drought conditions. And...precipitation and groundwater levels are declining in some areas. Commentator Rex Buchanan says Kansans should pay close attention to water issues...whether it's dry or not.

Commentator Rex Buchanan is the interim director of the Kansas Geological Survey. You'll find more of his commentaries on the KPR website.
