Directors Dean Jochem, Marty Graff, Manager Murphy, and Directors Cherryl Lovejoy and Greg Wilke (not pictured) discuss the Middle Niobrara's stand on legislative bills at the 2014 Nebraska Association of Resources District's Legislative Conference in Lincoln. Over 50 bills were discussed at this year's conference.
At the June 8, 2015 Middle Niobrara Natural Resources District Board of Director's Meeting, the Board approved a 6-month Temporary Stay on the addition of new groundwater irrigated acres, in compliance with Neb. Rev. Stat. 46-707(2). The Board also requested that the Nebraska Department of Natural Resources implement a similar 6-month Stay on new surface water irrigated acres. These temporary Stays went into effect on June 29, 2015. During the 6-month Stays, the MNNRD and NDNR will hold a joint public hearing to take comments on future use of ground and surface water within the MNNRD. If you have questions about the Stays please contact the MNNRD office at 402-376-3241.
