Greetings from SAKW,
Thanks for visiting our website.
SAKW was chartered in 1951 to represent all watershed districts in Kansas. SAKW is a non-profit organization supported by memberships and partnering agencies. The association is governed by a board of directors made up from representatives of watershed districts.
The day to day activities of the organization is managed by our Executive Director and Executive Secretary.
There are 80 separate watershed districts in 43 counties of Kansas. Over 1300 dams have been constructed through the federal PL-566, the state of Kansas Assistance to Watershed Dam Construction, and Multipurpose Small Lakes programs. Approximately 1200 additional structures are scheduled to be completed. When completed nearly 25% of the land area of Kansas will be protected by these structures.
Feel free to contact anyone associated with the organization by clicking on the link to our board of directors listing.
