Drought Continues in Gardner, KS. - City of Gardner Issues a "Water Watch".

Drought Continues in Gardner, KS. - City of Gardner Issues a "Water Watch".

A vast majority of the state of Kansas is in some stage of drought emergency and Gardner, KS. is no exception. 

Although it rained a little in Gardner this morning, the drought watch issued by the Kansas Water Office is still in place. The drought watch affects Gardner, Kansas.


In response to the Kansas Water Office direction, the City of Gardner has invoked a "Water Watch".

A "Water Watch" is the first and least restrictive step of three possible steps for water conservation. A "Water Watch" only calls for voluntary conservation. The City of Gardner recommends the following measures to conserve water:

  • Homes with even addresses water lawns on even numbered days and homes with odd numbered addresses water lawns on odd numbered days
  • Report water on roadways and grassy areas that does not go away
  • Wash full loads of laundry
  • Take shorter showers
  • Don't let faucets run
  • Fix all leaky toilets, faucets and pipes
  • Flush toilets and use garbage disposals only when necessary
  • Pick-up the phone and report significant water losses from broken pipes, open hydrants and errant sprinklers to the property owner or to the City.
  • Do one thing each day that will save water. Even if savings are small, every drop counts!
  • Install low water use shower heads
During a drought, water pipes will frequently leak due to movement of the soil. Please report any areas where water surfaces, as they may be evidence of leaks. Please help us protect our precious water commodity with voluntary conservation practices.

If you have questions on how to conserve water or about the "Water Watch," please call Jim Melvin at 913-856-0917 or jmelvin@gardnerkansas.gov
