Except as otherwise provided by K.S.A. 24-1203a, before any watershed district shall be organized, a petition shall be filed in the
office of the secretary of state, signed by not less than 20% of the landowners and
representing 25% of the acreage within said proposed district as shown by a verified
enumeration of said landowners taken by a landowner of said proposed district to be
selected by the first 10 signers of the petition. A verified copy of such enumeration shall be attached to and filed with the petition
in the office of the secretary of state. For purposes of determining ownership, the county clerk of the county in which any
part of the watershed is described, upon demand, shall furnish the record of the ownership
of the lands within the county from the tax rolls of the county, and such record of
ownership shall be satisfactory evidence of title.
