Helicopter Scans

The public is advised a low-flying helicopter will be conducting aerial electromagnetic scans across eastern Nebraska at least through July. The process requires electronic equipment suspended below the helicopter to detect glacial sands and gravel, sandstone and other water-bearing materials hundreds of feet below the surface.

Budget gets Tentative Approval

The LPSNRD Board of Directors has given tentative approval to the Fiscal Year 2019 LPSNRD Budget. At its regular meeting, July 18th, the board reviewed the balanced budget, which calls for $29,996,404 in revenues and expenditures. Increased valuations in the NRD's six-county area are expected to result in a decreased tax levy. The property tax requirement of $9,673,201 is up approximately 1.8%. The tentatively approved budget includes continued support for projects like the Deadman's Run Flood Reduction Project and Salt Creek Levee updating. Final consideration of the budget is expected at the board's meeting August 15th, following the annual Budget Public Hearing on Thursday, August 9th. Both meetings begin at 7:00 PM at the LPSNRD office, 3125 Portia Street, Lincoln.

Introducing LPSNRD's first-ever Weather/Preciptation Outlook to help farmers and other residents of the district plan activities that could be affected by drought or other weather-related conditions during the growing season. The "Outlook" is intended to be an annual guide, but will be updated as conditions warrant.

Thank you to the respected agencies listed in the document that helped to compile this custom tool.
