The Lower Platte South Natural Resources District (LPSNRD) is comprised of a six county area of southeastern Nebraska, covering nearly one million acres and 300,000 residents. The goal of the LPSNRD is to conserve, develop and manage the water and land resources of the district for the common good of all people. LPSNRD is governed by a 21–member Board.

The Lower Platte South Natural Resources District operates and maintains 200 flood control dams, 13 miles of levees, approximately 12 miles of urban stream channels, 50 miles of trails, 9 wildlife management areas, 11 public wetlands, and monitors ground water quantity and quality.

Each year we also provide over $1M in cost-share assistance to landowners to install best management practices.
