Water for sale in central Nebraska
November 17, 2007

Water shortages in Kansas and Nebraska have led to a lot of changes in the way people think about water, and the discussion of a possible sale of water from the Platte River basin to the Republican River basin in Nebraska is one of them. People are slowly beginning to see clean water not as a limitless resource but as a natural commodity like many others. As for pumping that much clean water from place to place, the idea could become expensive in quite a hurry.
