Water Conservation Program
The city recognizes the importance of scarcity of water in Kansas, especially during this prolonged drought. In addition to the securing of additional water sources and improving our infrastructure, the city began a residential water conservation program in 2013 by offering free low-flow shower heads to our customers.
