Protecting Property. NRDs protect communities and rural areas from flooding. Working with towns, cities, villages and partner agencies, the NRDs have constructed flood control structures for communities across the state.
Protecting Lives. NRDs work with other agencies to help protect public water supplies. Wellhead protection, rural water systems and surface water sampling are all examples of NRD water quality projects. Monitoring the water quality across the state means your health, safety and family are protected.
Protecting the Future. Nebraska's NRDs have a variety of projects and programs to educate both youth and adults about conservation and natural resources. Many districts sponsor and participate in natural resources festivals, teacher workshops, classroom presentations and more.
