CURTIS -- The Nebraska Department of Natural Resources will be presenting the annual Republican Basin forecast at the Monday meeting of the Nebraska Republican River Management Districts Association, to be at the Curtis Community Center at 1 p.m. The meeting is open to the public.
The basin forecast predicts Nebraska's allowable depletions to the Republican River for the coming year, factoring in current water supplies and predictable climatic conditions. By statute, DNR must present this forecast on an annual basis.
Other agenda items include updates from Frenchman-Cambridge, Frenchman Valley and Bostwick Irrigation districts, Republican River NRDs, and the Nebraska Attorney General's office.
The Nebraska Republican River Management Districts Association is a collaboration of the four Natural Resources Districts, and three Irrigation Districts serving constituents in the Republican River Basin. This meeting is open to the public, and an agenda for the meeting is available for inspection at the Upper Republican NRD in Imperial; the Middle Republican NRD in Curtis; the Lower Republican NRD in Alma; and the Tri-Basin NRD in Holdrege.
