Equus Beds Groundwater Mgmt Dist #2 Company Information
- United States
The Equus Beds aquifer is the principal source of fresh and usable water in south central Kansas. The aquifer underlies portions of a four-county area(Harvey, McPherson, Reno and Sedgwick counties)which is about 900,000 acres in size. The purpose of GMD #2 and its Board of Directors is to properly manage groundwater resources of the District for the benefit of the resource and the public interest by balancing groundwater withdrawals with annual recharge to the aquifer to prevent groundwater mining and protect the natural water quality of the aquifer rand to remediate groundwater contamination. The District's Aquifer Safe-yield Principle and the Groundwater Quality Principle are fundamental to such management.
