Kansas Aqueduct Study

A Kansas Aqueduct Study is underway to update and evaluate the technical, legal political, financial and other aspects of a concept developed in 1982 to divert Missouri River flows to western Kansas. This concept was conceived by the U.S. Department of Commerce to evaluate a water transfer element (aqueduct) that would replace depleting irrigation water from the Ogallala Aquifer with available renewable surface water.

Through the Corps planning assistance cost-share program, an update to the 1982 study has begun. The update is expected to take 12 months to complete.
