LINCOLN (AP) - Officials say sediment problems have put the Niobrara River on a list of the nation’s most endangered rivers.
The American Rivers conservation group announced Wednesday that the nearly 570-mile-long river was 10th on the 2013 list. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is working on sediment and high-water conditions that could affect the village of Niobrara and nearby farm fields.
