    Just got notice of new website you'll want to save to your favorites.
    I have to say this is one example of our tax dollars at GOOD work !!

    ASTRA is pleased to announce the launch of a new website to deliver results of our statewide lake mapping program to the general public.

    Aimed primarily at boaters, fishermen, and other recreational users of our state waters, Kansas Lake Maps (www.kansaslakemaps.com
    ) provides free lake bottom contour (bathymetric) maps of over two dozen local, state, and federal lakes and reservoirs across the state.

    The site is designed to allow a user to select a lake based on its name, area, depth, location by county, or proximity to the nearest city. Users can download a map suitable for viewing and printing in PDF format from the site.

    Data for creating the lake maps came from ASTRA's long-term program of reservoir bathymetric surveys, funded primarily by the Kansas Water Office under the Reservoir Sustainability Initiative.

    As additional lakes continue to be mapped by ASTRA, maps for those reservoirs will be posted on the website, with the long-term intent of providing maps for nearly every reservoir in the state.

    Contour maps of the lake bottom are the first product to be delivered via the website, with additional products in development.
