|Kansas Water Use Reporting System|
Welcome to the Kansas Water Use Reporting System. Annual water use can be reported on-line 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 uses, except domestic use, by March 1 of each year. Filing a complete and accurate report will help protect your water right.
If you need help, please read the Instructions for completing the on-line report and Terms and Definitions.
Failure to file a water use report by March 1, or filing an incomplete report, subjects the owner to a civil penalty not to exceed $1,000 per water right permit. Failure to file a water use report by June 1 could result in a suspension of all water use until the report has been submitted. See K.S.A. 82a-732.
