The Kansas Induced Seismicity State Task Force

Posted on June 23, 2016 at 12:48 PM by Bill Sowers

In 2014 Governor Sam Brownback established the Kansas Induced Seismicity State Task Force to investigate the increased number of earthquakes being reported in Kansas, primarily in Harper and Sumner County.  The Task Force met six times and developed a Seismic Action Plan.

Information on this Task Force is available at the Kansas Corporation Commission's website:

The State Library of Kansas has also collected some material on this subject which can be found here:
