The Norfolk Daily News Quotes: “No one associated with the Lower Elkhorn Natural Resources District wants to see a repeat of the summer of 2012. Not the lack of rainfall. Not the declining levels of water in agricultural and municipal wells. And certainly not the realization that the NRD staff and board members were being asked to make drought-related management decisions without a lot of reliable statistical information to draw upon.
That’s why, over the past several months, the NRD has been working on developing a drought mitigation plan that would be an amendment to its already established groundwater management plan.”
