Drop of Water

The Upper Republican Natural Resources District preserves and protects groundwater and other natural resources in a three-county region of Southwest Nebraska. The District uses its groundwater-management authorities to sustain the region’s strong, agricultural-based economy over the long term so future generations can enjoy the quality of life that exists within the District. The URNRD also works closely with the State of Nebraska and other NRDs to implement and operate projects that maintain compliance with an interstate water compact, the Republican River Compact.
