The Kansas Department of Agriculture is accepting applications for a revised program that gives water right holders more flexibility in managing the way they use their allocations.

Changes in the state's multi-year flex account are aimed at conserving water and extending the life of the Ogallala Aquifer.

The new application form is available on the website of the state Division of Water Resources and at its offices.

A multi-year flex account lets water right holders pump more water in any year but restricts the total pumping over the five-year period. The program is voluntary.
