Welcome to Tri-Basin Natural Resources District

Tri-Basin NRD operates a district-wide Groundwater Management Area to protect groundwater quality and quantity.

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. There are 13 members of TBNRD’s Board of Directors, 12 of whom are elected from designated sub-districts and one at-large member. 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.
