Republican River Compact  

On December 30, 2022, the Nebraska Department of Natural Resources (NeDNR) issued an Order that a Compact Call Year will be in effect for 2023. According to our Integrated Management Plan (IMP), we will need to take management actions to stay in compliance with the compact. One particular action that is automatically triggered is a 13” Hard Cap for ground water pumping this year. Also, if water conditions in the basin do not improve through the spring and summer, it is a likelihood that we will need to augment streamflow (e.g., NCORPE) or produce other compliance actions.


The Lower Republican NRD Board of Directors hereby provides public notice that the regular monthly public meeting of the Lower Republican NRD will be held on Thursday, April 13th, 2023 at 7 pm, in the Lower Republican NRD Meeting Room, 30 John Street, Alma, NE.   

An agenda of the meeting is available for public inspection during normal business hours at the LRNRD office, on the front door of the NRCS offices, and at the following website:
