Nebraska bill looks to manage NE water usage

Posted: 03/28/13 09:12

A Nebraska lawmaker is pushing for the state to develop a long-term plan to manage its water resources. Sen. Tom Carlson of Holdrege is proposing a state task force that would identify water-project needs, map them out, and rank them by importance. Carlson could present his bill to the full Legislature on Thursday.
The bill was introduced in the wake of a summer drought that stressed farms, ranches, cities and private wells. The task force would report to the Legislature by Jan. 31, 2014.
