The recommendations were identified through the following research and analysis processes:
- Review and analysis of Kansas state laws and county sanitary codes;
- Representative sampling and review of 24 Kansas city codes;
- Literature review to identify best practices in water quality management for nonpublic water wells;
- Dozens of key informant interviews to develop and evaluate proposed recommendations;
- A survey of more than 100 Kansas stakeholders to determine public health significance, feasibility of, and potential funding sources of proposed recommendations; and
- A survey of stakeholders to identify which organizations need to lead the implementation of each recommendation.
