Every KS County Now Under Emergency Drought Status

Governor Brownback

(KNZA)--Drought conditions persist and intensify for Kansas which led Governor Sam Brownback to update the Drought Declaration for Kansas counties with an Executive Order 12-10 today.  The update includes all 105 counties in an emergency status.

The updated drought declaration has all 105 counties in an emergency status. This status triggers the Kansas Water Office and Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism to issue a Memorandum of Understanding for emergency use of state fishing lake storage under conditions of drought emergency declared by the Governor. This action was recommended by Tracy Streeter, Director of the KWO and Chair of the Governor’s Drought Response Team.
