Flood Control

As long as rain falls and snow melts, floods will occur.  Nebraska’s Natural Resources Districts work with landowners and other agencies to minimize the damages that floods cause.  Utilizing flood plain management measures, the NRDs help protect people and property from flood damage by designing and building dams, levees, dikes, drainage ditches, and other structures to keep flood waters from taking lives or damaging crops, buildings or roads.  Contact Projects Manager, Curt Becker, for more information – cbecker@lenrd.org  The Lower Elkhorn Natural Resources District – Protecting Lives, Protecting Property, Protecting the Future.
