On June 28, 2019, Ray Luhman retired as manager of the Northwest Kansas Groundwater Management District No. 4. Ray had worked for GMD 4 for 40 years, joining as assistant manager in 1979, and serving as manager since 2015. Ray has been a large part of the service provided by the District to its water users and a strong and effective advocate for the sensible water management of the District. In his years as manager, Ray led his district through the process of establishing the first, and thus far only, groundwater management district-wide local enhanced management areas (LEMA) in the state.
Congratulations and best wishes to Ray.
