The Tri-Basin NRD board is reviewing whether to extend the allocation period in Union Township from three to five years, beginning in 2023. The NRD proposes to allow irrigators to pump a total of 45” per acre (with a maximum of 9” per acre carry-over) during the five-year allocation period. No other changes are planned.
At the request of a Union Township irrigator, the NRD Planning Committee will review groundwater level data on Wednesday, August 24 at 7 PM at the Tri-Basin NRD office, 1723 Burlington St. in Holdrege. You are welcome to attend.
If you would like to review data on groundwater levels and water use, feel free to check the Union Township information below. If you are unable to attend this meeting, but you have questions or comments, feel free to call John Thorburn, General Manager, toll-free at (877) 995-6688, or email John at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your efforts to conserve our vital soil and water resources!
