Amber Waves of Change: High & Dry (Part 1)

Today, KPR begins a four-part series titled: “Amber Waves of Change,” where we hear about issues affecting the rural Midwest.

Water has always been -- and still is -- the key to survival in western Kansas. Farmers out west are in the midst of an historic drought. University of Kansas Journalism Professor David Guth has been traveling the region and conducting research for an upcoming book about communities facing declining populations. In this report, Guth says there’s agreement on the need to conserve water… but little agreement on how to do it. 

(This report is part one of a four-part series titled, "Amber Waves of Change," about issues affecting the rural Midwest.)


University of Kansas Journalism Professor David Guth is also a commentator for Kansas Public Radio. He's authored a special series of commentaries on KPR called "Amber Waves of Change."
