2019 Water Use Reporting Season Now Open

The 2019 Water Use Reports were mailed just before New Years. Water users must report usage by 5:00 p.m. on March 1, 2020 in order to avoid late fees of up to $1,000 per file number (excluding domestic use).

File Online at www.KSWaterUseReport.org

Please note that submitting a paper water use report will require a $20 per water right per report paper filing fee (excluding domestic use). The filing fee can be avoided by reporting water use online.  

For help filing your report, contact your local field office or call 785-564-6638.
