My bill includes a Kansas Water Plan charge. What does this pay for?

It's a state fee, required of all water customers in Kansas. State law requires all water utilities to collect a consumption-based fee from customers and remit it to the State of Kansas for the Kansas Water Plan. The state uses this money to manage statewide water issues like sustainable sources, flood management, water quality, and wetland protection. To learn more, contact the Kansas Water Office (Topeka) at 888-526-9283 (888-KAN-WATER).
