Of water resources in West-Central Kansas

Our Mission

Across five counties and 1,118,200 acres, there are 2,805 permitted groundwater wells within the district pumping Ogallala aquifer water. The average annual usage has been approximately 300,000 acre-feet per year. Based on the amount of water in storage as well as the annual recharge, without any intervention, there is approximately 20 years of pumping left.

What We Do

Here at GMD1 we strive to provide community driven programs and policies that protect the local economy and enhance groundwater conservation.
