We don’t experience it as strongly in Manhattan as they do in other parts of the state, but in parts of Kansas this is the fourth year of drought, resulting in stress to our water supply sources. Governor Brownback has asked several government departments to work together to examine this problem and plan a vision for the future.
To learn more about water in Kansas, the library has “You Never Miss the Water Till…: The Ogallala Story” by Morton Bittinger or “Ogallala Blue: Water and Life on the High Plains” by William Ashworth.
To learn about reducing your water usage, we have “Taking On Water: How One Water Expert Challenged Her Inner Hypocrite, Reduced Her Water Footprint (Without Sacrificing a Toasty Shower), and Found Nirvana” by Wendy Pabich or “Grow More With Less: Sustainable Garden Methods: Less Water, Less Work, Less Money” by Vincent Simeone.
