In Kansas, a permit or certified water right is required before diverting water for any purpose other than domestic/household use. Water rights have conditions such as maximum rates of diversion and annual quantities of water, specific locations where diversion can occur, specific locations where water is to be used and specific beneficial uses of the water diverted. It is a violation of the law if water is not used in compliance of the conditions of a water right.
Water systems needing a explanation of the water rights they hold or assistance in maintaining compliance with their water rights are welcome to contact Kansas Rural Water Association.
