Welcome to Tri-Basin Natural Resources District

Tri-Basin Natural Resources District is the local government agency which is responsible for protection of natural resources in Gosper, Phelps and Kearney Counties in South Central Nebraska. Tri-Basin NRD is unique among Nebraska’s 23 NRDs because it includes portions of three different river basins: the Republican, the Platte, and the Little Blue Basin.

The vision of Tri-Basin NRD, as set forth by these directors, is to work cooperatively with District residents and others to promote good stewardship of land and water resources. Tri-Basin NRD operates a district-wide Groundwater Management Area to protect groundwater quality and quantity.
