Central Platte Natural Resources District

The Central Platte NRD manages natural resources for all or parts of 11 counties along the Platte River.

Soil erosion, flooding and surface/groundwater drainage are all challenges that are faced in this District. Our goal is to use each acre within its capability and to treat each acre according to its needs as set forth in the technical guidelines adopted by the District. The District has included the Erosion and Sediment Act, adopted by the Nebraska Legislature in 1986, as part of the NRD's Master Plan. The Act established a state-wide program designed to reduce erosion to tolerable levels throughout the state. Cost-share programs are available to encourage conservation measures on privately owned land that will produce long-term benefits for the general public; flood prevention, flood control and channel rectification fall under this budget category.

Nebraska’s Natural Resources Districts are local government entities with broad responsibilities to protect our natural resources. NRDs help Nebraskans respond to natural resource challenges with local control and local solutions.

Major Nebraska river basins form the boundaries of the 23 NRDs; which are governed by locally elected boards of directors.

Central Platte NRD is governed by a 21-member board of directors, who are elected by voters within the
district. The board sets policy for the district and then works with the staff to carry out the district’s
goals. Our staff work cooperatively with other local and state groups to promote good stewardship of
natural resources in the district.
