Tour will focus on maintaining quality of Kansas water
Sep 12 2011
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-KS) has announced that his 11th Annual Partners in Conservation Tour will take place on Thursday, September 29 and Friday, September 30, 2011. This year’s conservation tour will focus on water conservation and will feature stops in Sedgwick, Butler, Harvey, Greenwood and Elk Counties. Specific tour stops in each county will be announced later this week.
“Conserving our natural resources is critical to preserving Kansas for the next generation,” Sen. Moran said. “Water conservation and natural resource management is particularly important to our economy and quality of life. Water is the lifeblood of our municipalities, the foundation for statewide recreation, and will direct the future of manufacturing and production agriculture. The conservation tour gives me the opportunity to learn how farmers and businesses, conservation groups and government programs are partnering together to ensure a successful future for Kansas, while maintaining and improving the environment."
Since coming to Congress, Sen. Moran has held regular tours across Kansas to observe conservation practices at work, and he is continuing this tradition as a United States Senator. The tour is open to members of the press and anyone else interested in attending. Questions about Sen. Moran’s participation may be directed to Lindsey Trent at Lindsey_Trent@moran.senate.gov.
