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...

RiverWare simulated daily averaged surface water permit requested diversions and diversions modeled in the spatially refined model region within the Red River Basin. Values reported are for 18 different climate projection scenarios and a historical scenario, from 2010 through 2099 and 1976 through 2005, respectively. The RiverWare model was used to determine the impacts on regulated flows, resevoir levels, and water permit reliability. RiverWare was used for this project because of its ability to simulate water use, reservoir operations, and local/interstate regulations.

This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Data Release provides derivative statistics of water used by Kansas public-supply systems in 2015. Gallons per capita per day is calculated using self-reported information in the “Part B: Monthly Water Use Summary” and “Part C: Population, Service Connections, and Water Rates” sections of the Kansas Department of Agriculture, Division of Water Resources' (DWR) annual municipal water use report (see appendixes at http://dx.doi.org/10.3133/ds964 for an example of a municipal water use report form.) Percent unaccounted for water is calculated using self-reported information in “Part B: Monthly Water Use Summary” of the DWR’s municipal water-use report. The published statistics from...

This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Data Release provides derivative statistics of water used by Kansas irrigators in the Kansas irrigation water-use analysis regions. 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 precipitation and the current 30-year climatic normal (based on 1981–2010) are also shown by region. The amount of water used, irrigated acres, and application rates are further grouped by crop type. The amount of water used and irrigated acres are further grouped by irrigation method. Total reported irrigation water use in 2014 was 3.3 million acre-feet of water applied to...

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...

Simulated daily averaged surface water permit requested diversions and diversions modeled in the spatially refined model region within the Canadian River Basin RiverWare model. Values reported are for forty-six (46) scenarios implementing combinations of 1) three various climate model outputs for three various representative concentration pathways, 2) three various reservoir water right policy assumptions, and 3) three various projected future demands from 1983 through 2099. The RiverWare model was used to determine the impacts on regulated flows, reservoir levels, and water permit diversions. RiverWare software was used for this project because of its ability to simulate water use, reservoir operations, water right...

A temporary water use authorization may be needed if the amount of water to be used is a significantamount, the use continues for less than five consecutive years, and the water to be used is notappropriated. This authorization does not establish a water right but will avoid conflicts withfisheries and existing water right holders.This shape file characterizes the geographic representation of land parcels within the Stateof Alaska contained by the Temporary Water Use Permit - Surface category. It has been extractedfrom data sets used to produce the State status plats. This data set includes cases noted on thedigital status plats up to one day prior to data extraction.Each feature has an associated attribute record,...

A water right is a legal right to use surface or ground water under the Alaska Water Use Act (AS 46.15).A water right allows a specific amount of water from a specific water source to be diverted, impounded,or withdrawn for a specific use. When a water right is granted, it becomes appurtenant to the land wherethe water is being used for as long as the water is used. If the land is sold, the water right transferswith the land to the new owner, unless the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) approves its separationfrom the land. In Alaska, because water wherever it naturally occurs is a common property resource, landownersdo not have automatic rights to ground water or surface water. For example, if a farmer has...

This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Data Release provides derivative county-level statistics of water used by Kansas irrigators in 2014. The published county-level 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 precipitation and the current 30-year climatic normal (based on 1981–2010) are also shown by county. Other data published in this data release include the amount of water used, irrigated acres, and application rates by crop type and the amount of water used and number of irrigated acres for each irrigation method. Total reported irrigation water use in 2014 was 3.3 million acre-feet of water...

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.

A reservation of water for in-stream use is a water right that protects specific in-stream water uses, such as fish spawning or recreation. It sets aside the water necessary for these activities and keeps later water users from appropriating water that may affect the in-stream activity. This dataset includes those features that are represented by polygons. This dataset includes additional information extracted from the Alaska Land Administration System by the Conservation Biology Institute. Water can be reserved for one or more permissible uses on a particular part of a stream or lake during a certain period of time. Under AS 46.15.145, permissible in-stream uses include: Protection of fish and wildlife habitat,...
