The Kansas Biological Survey and the Kansas Water Office have combined efforts to make available online the Kansas Lakes and Reservoirs Data Repository Portal, which can be found here.

The mission of the Kansas Lakes and Reservoirs Data Repository Portal is to serve as 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.
