Wichita to review options for water supplies

WICHITA, Kansas – Wichita officials plan to review the city’s water options for new supplies and conservation.

A workshop Tuesday at City Hall will include presentations from utility employees on strategies for ensuring a stable water supply through 2060. Some of those include revamped programs to reduce water usage and adding new sources of water.

The city says in a news release that some of the conservation options include a modified rebate program, education and mailings to residents about leak repairs. Other options include studies about outdoor water conservation and re-use in industrial processes.

Potential new water sources include El Dorado Lake and non-potable reuse of treated wastewater.
