Abstract: Years ago the News & Record ran a brief wire story about “the thirstiest town in Kansas.” The small town of Rolla used over four times more water per person than the state average. The story didn’t explain the cause of Rolla’s “thirst,” but it noted that like many small towns, Rolla had no water meters. Residents paid only a monthly fee.
