SOUTH HUTCHINSON, Kan.— The city of South Hutchinson is looking to find ways to address issues with the amount of water that is available to the community.
The matter will be discussed during tonight’s City Council meeting. According to Mayor Matt Nisly, the city is nearing its full capacity of available water each day. Several wells are falling off in quality along with other water rights matters. The problems are amplified by the city having two major companies in the area, including Tyson which uses a major portion of the city’s water supply each day.
The City Council will hear a presentation from their engineering firm about possible solutions to the water problems. Tonight’s South Hutchinson City Council meeting begins at 7 p.m. at 101 West Avenue C.
