This dataset describes irrigation water use in Kansas in 2015. Volumes of water used, irrigated area, and average irrigation application depths are provided for three sets of subareas: (1) Irrigation water use analysis regions that include Groundwater Management Districts (GMDs) with the areas outside of GMDs divided into eastern, central, and western Kansas; (2) Regional Planning Areas (RPAs), which are 14 areas determined by the Kansas Water Office based on hydrologic and administrative boundaries, each with a set of goals outlined in the Kansas Water Vision (https://kwo.ks.gov/water-plan/water-vision); and (3) the 105 Kansas counties. Volumes of water used, irrigated area, and average application depths are also...
This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Data Release represents geospatial and tabular data on irrigation water use in Kansas. The data release was produced in compliance with open data requirements. The dataset consists of 3 separate items with similar attributes aggregated to different geographic extents: 1. Kansas counties; 2. Kansas regional planning areas used in the Kansas Water Plan; and 3. Kansas irrigation water-use analysis regions. Reported 2014 water withdrawn for irrigation, acres irrigated, and application rates along with the published application rate statistics from the previous 4 years (2010–13) are shown with the 2014 statistics and are used to calculate a 5-year average. The 2014 annual total...

Reported 2014 water withdrawn for irrigation, acres irrigated, and application rates in Kansas regional planning areas used in the Kansas Water Plan (spatial and tabular data).
This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Data Release provides derivative 2014 statistics of water used by Kansas irrigators in the 14 regional planning areas used in the Kansas Water Plan. The published application rate from 2013 is shown with the 2014 statistics. A 5-year average will be calculated with 2017 data. The 2014 annual total precipitation and the current 30-year climatic normal (based on 1981–2010) are also shown by regional planning area.
