Overview
Water usage and conservation is an important issue. Only 1 percent of the total water supply on Earth is available for humans. Of that, 42 percent is used in agriculture. Not all freshwater resources are evenly
distributed. In Kansas, water usage and water rights are very important topics. As a state, how do we balance the need for water in agriculture, manufacturing, and our daily lives? It is important that everybody does their part to conserve the invaluable natural resource.
