Kansas Water Use Reporting System

Welcome to the Kansas Water Use Reporting System!

Annual water use can be reported online to comply with the water use reporting requirements of the Kansas Water Appropriation Act. Owners of water rights in Kansas must report the previous years' use for all beneficial uses, except domestic use, by March 1 of each year. Filing a complete and accurate report will help protect your water right.

Failure to file a water use report by March 1, or filing an incomplete report, subjects the owner(s) to a civil penalty of $250 per file number. Failure to file a water use report by June 1 subjects the owner(s) to a civil penalty of $1,000 per file number and could result in a suspension of all water use until the report has been submitted. See K.S.A. 82a-732.

As of October 2018, a filing fee of $20 per file number must accompany a mailed water use report.
Online water use reporting is FREE.
