Annual Arkansas River Quality and Cleanup
The Arkansas River and Little Arkansas River water is tested by the City of Wichita, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, and the United States Geological Survey.
Annually, the City of Wichita and local businesses sponsor the Arkansas River Trash Round Up event. The event brings together volunteers to clear trash from the river banks. In 2016, over two tons of trash was removed. For river water quality and Trash Round Up information, select the link below.
