The afternoon session will cover Central Platte NRD and University of Nebraska activities. These meetings are an opportunity for area landowners and producers to visit with the NRD about concerns and thoughts for management of the aquifer.

A current groundwater level map can be found at:  Maps of the area with detailed groundwater and geologic information will be available for review.


-  Attendance will replace the requirement to take the Nitrogen Management Certification Test for Central Platte NRD’s Groundwater Quality Management Program.
