NBC Wichita, KSN: Saving Wichita’s water supply


WICHITA, Kansas - Every living organism on the planet depends on water to survive. As our cities grow so does our demand and the problem for Wichita is its supply isn’t growing at the same rate.

Most of the water we use in the city comes from the Cheney Reservoir – most, but not all. About 40 percent of what comes out of our taps every day comes from a huge underground reservoir. It’s called the Equus Beds Aquifer and it stretches from McPherson and Reno County all the way toSedgwick County. It holds billions of gallons of fresh water.
