Governor appoints water task force

Friday, May 21, 2010

CURTIS, Nebraska -- Gov. Dave Heineman has appointed the members of the Republican River Sustainability Task Force. This task force, as proposed by Sen. Tom Carlson of Holdrege, is made up of a broad spectrum of interests across the Republican River basin. Kevin Fornoff and Joe Anderjaska have been selected to represent the Middle Republican NRD. Together, Kevin and Joe have over 21 years of service on the NRD board of directors. Kevin Fornoff also serves on the Southwest Public Power District board and Joe Anderjaska is a member of the Hayes Center Board of Education and is Vice-President Nebraska Association of Resources Districts. The mission of the task force is to look at sustainability issues in the basin and it will be a challenging process. One of the first steps of the task force will be to decide what sustainability means within the framework of Nebraska law and how to apply that definition of sustainability to the water supplies of the basin. The experiences of Fornoff and Anderjaska over the last ten years of dealing with water issues should be of great value to the task force. Anyone wishing to express thoughts, concerns or comments to Kevin and Joe can send them to Roger Lawson, rlawson@mrnrd.org, or to PO Box 81, Curtis NE, 69025 and we will be happy to forward them to Kevin or Joe.
