A new recreational lake for central Nebraska could be forthcoming
November 11, 2009

Nebraska's Central Platte NRD is working on a project to develop a reservoir for flood control and recreational use between Lexington and Kearney. Most of the area currently proposed for the reservoir is farmland, but the intent of the project would be to create a 100-year-flood barrier for the town of Elm Creek, along with recreational features to make the project more useful to the region. Much discussion and debate is left to be handled before anything moves forward.

Engineers and others working on flood-control projects should feel free to contact us with their questions about products like water-control gates, including those for sophisticated applications like upstream level control and downstream level control, as well as much more common applications like sluice gates.
