One of the most significant ways that the Kansas Rural Water Association is able to provide technical assistance to public water systems is through a contract administered by the Kansas Water Office. The funding is a benefit of the Clean Drinking Water Fee. In FY21, the contract provided assistance to 167 cities and 116 rural water systems, public wholesale systems or other water systems. The Association conducted 168 water loss surveys in 85 different water systems (cities and RWDs), locating 304.5 million gallons of loss on an annual basis.

Here is the Summary Report for Fiscal Year 21 for results from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021.
