Description

The mission of the Kansas Lakes and Reservoirs data portal is to serve as a central point for users to obtain current and historical data about Kansas lakes and reservoirs.  Rather than serving as a data repository, the portal is a dynamic connection to directly access datasets housed and maintained by various agencies and groups.  The portal brings these datasets into a mapping application for direct viewing and data download.
