"You donít necessarily get what you want in the end,
but you are guaranteed to not get what you donít want."

Wayne Bossert, former GMD4 Manager (2011)


In accordance with K.S.A. 82a-1041, Big Bend Groundwater Management District No. 5 is pursuing a Local Enhanced Management Area ("LEMA") to address streamflow concerns, groundwater depletions and their impact on Rattlesnake Creek, and to provide a remedy to the Quivira National Wildlife Refuge impairment complaint. This page is intended to provide information to stakeholders in the area regarding this process.

If you would like to provide feedback on the LEMA process or the objectives currently being considered, please use this form and email it to LEMA@gmd5.org.

Due to the magnitude of comments received, the LEMA committee felt it is important to allow more time for submitting comments. This will allow time for the LEMA committee to fully consider these comments and have the ability to properly respond to them before the next public meeting.
