Central Platte NRD Board to Consider Approval of Amended Water Service Agreement
The Central Platte Natural Resources District (CPNRD) Board of Directors will consider an amended water service agreement with the Nebraska Department of Natural Resources at their monthly meeting to be held at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 15, 2022. The amended agreement with Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District (Central) allows Central to divert water into the E-65 Canal, Phelps Canal, Elwood Reservoir, and various Waterfowl Production Areas to provide aquifer recharge. The agreement states that the Nebraska Department of Natural Resources will pay Central $19,100,000.00 for the water service. The Board will also consider approval to terminate the contract with the Nebraska Community Foundation since the Foundation is no longer the contracting agent for the Platte River Recovery Implementation Program.
