Program sets priority water conservation area


WICHITA, Kan. (AP)--Three water management districts in Kansas have been awarded grants to help irrigators conserve water and improve water quality on working farmland.

The grants were awarded under the Agricultural Water Enhancement Program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The Northwest Kansas Groundwater Management District is receiving $2.7 million to address the shrinking aquifer by converting irrigated land to dryland cropland.

A $1.1 million grant to the Equus Beds district in south-central Kansas will be used to install more efficient irrigation systems.

Also in south-central Kansas, the Big Bend groundwater district received $570,000 to convert farm acreage to non-irrigated uses.

Producers in those project areas have until Aug. 13 to apply.
