A Kansas Water Plan project conducted by the Kansas Geological
Survey for the Kansas Water Office to evaluate the movement of saline Arkansas
River water into ground water resources in southwest Kansas.
The Arkansas River in southeast Colorado and southwest
Kansas is one of the most saline rivers in the U.S. Most of the dissolved
salts in the river water entering Kansas remain in the river corridor.
This study is evaluating the fate and transport of the dissolved solids
that are contaminating the ground-water resources of the High Plains aquifer
in the river corridor. The evaluation includes determining the relationships
among river flow and quality, ground-water levels and quality, and water
