Who gets Nebraska's irrigation water?
September 23, 2009
Public meetings in Nebraska are revealing a serious problem for the state: It needs to reduce the amount of water taken from the Republican River so that it can comply with legal obligations to send some of that water downstream to Kansas, but cutting back on irrigation could hurt the farm economy
, which in turn could seriously harm even the non-farming economy. About a third
of all Nebraska cropland depends on irrigation. This means that the stakes are very high for those farmers who rely on irrigation to ensure that the inevitable regulations to come are shaped in ways that protect their interests.
