NORFOLK - Due to the well problems caused by groundwater declines this summer, the Lower Elkhorn Natural Resources District will consider designating additional groundwater management areas.
Their regular Board Meeting will be held tonight at 7:30 p.m. in the Lifelong Learning Center on the campus of Northeast Community College in Norfolk. During this meeting, the board will also be considering requiring flow meters for irrigation use, setting maximum irrigation amounts to prohibit excessive irrigation use, and restricting new irrigated acres. Proposals from vendors for equipment used to monitor in-season groundwater declines will be presented. The meeting is open to the public.
