Celebrate Our 45th...Wear our FREE T-Shirt!

NRD Intern
Emily Hergenrader

The NRD will be handing out FREE T-SHIRTS to MoPac East Trail users on Tuesday, June 27th, from 4:30 to 6:30 PM. The NRD is celebrating its 45th year of protecting lives, protecting property and protecting the future and we hope you'll stop by the 84th Street Trailhead (just south of "O" Street), pick up your T-shirt and wear it proudly to help us celebrate! It's also Nacho Ride night!

Salt Creek Levee Trail Closing

A portion of the Salt Creek Levee Trail through Lincoln will close beginning Thursday, June 8th. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will begin repairing damage to the levee caused by storms in 2015, from "A" Street, north to "F" Street. That portion of trail is expected to remain closed until about mid-July.

Budget Process Continues

The NRD rolled-out its first draft of a Fiscal Year 2018 Budget when the NRD Board of Directors met June 21st. The NRD Board's Finance and Planning Subcommittee is now working to balance the $29.2 million expenditures plan with expected revenues by the time the Board meets again July 19th.


Mowing the steep slopes of Lincoln's Salt Creek Levee is a dangerous task for NRD crews each summer, but this year a remote-controlled mower is being used. It allows the operator to stand a safe distance away.
