Public hearing to be held December 15th on proposed changes to the Groundwater Management Plan

The Lower Elkhorn NRD will hold a public hearing to receive public comment regarding proposed changes to Section 7 of the district’s groundwater management plan on Thursday, December 15th at 7:30 p.m.

In 2016, the district modified its groundwater management plan to require the installation of flow meters on irrigation wells. The proposed changes to the plan will require commercial, industrial, public water supply and livestock wells or series of wells that are designed to pump more than 50 gallons per minute to install flow meters as well.

To view the proposed changes to Section 7 of the plan, please refer to this documents below.

Anyone wishing to provide testimony regarding the proposed changes to the district’s rules is welcome do so in person at the public hearing. Written testimony will also be accepted prior to the conclusion of the public hearing.
