McPherson BPU is committed to providing its customers with clean and reliable water, not only now, but also in the future.
Knowing the City of McPherson’s potential for growth coupled with the reality of a declining aquifer, the BPU realizes it’s responsibility to evaluate and develop future supply sources for the next generation.
On November 7, 2017, the BPU received three water well permits to proceed from the Division of Water Resources. These permits allow the utility to continue evaluating the development of additional water supply south of McPherson. The current well field is located in the McPherson Intensive Ground Water Use Control Area (IGUCA), which is a 56 square mile area in and around McPherson that continues to experience a declining aquifer.
Development of these resources outside the IGUCA should provide McPherson with a sustainable supply of water for the next 50 years.
