Set a minimum of 300 feet in all areas except when within 1 mile of the nearest valley wall of Kansas River then set to the following:

  • T.10S, R.9E set to 880 feet mean sea level;
  • T.10S, R.10E set to 870 feet m.s.l.
  • T.10S, R.11E set to 850 feet m.s.l.
  • T.10S, and 11S, R.12E set to 840 feet m.s.l.
  • T.11S, R.13E set to 810 feet m.s.l.

In all cases, set through all unconsolidated material plus 20 feet into the underlying formation.

For areas in which casing settings are given as sea level datums, topographic maps are available showing surface elevations. These maps may be obtained from the U.S. Geological Survey at Denver, Colorado; Rolla, Missouri and Washington, D.C.; and the State Geological Survey, Lawrence, Kansas.
