The Natural Resource Report can be heard every Wednesday at 4:17pm. You will hear the latest from cooperating Natural Resource Districts: Middle Republican, Upper Republican, Lower Republican, Tri-Basin, Central Platte, and Little Blue NRD's. For more information on any of the 23 Natural Resource Districts in Nebraska go here!
My name is Marcia Lee of the Central Platte Natural Resources District in Grand Island Nebraska, and this is.. the Natural Resources Report.
Have you seen Central Platte NRD’s new website? You can find it at: www.cpnrd.org. Let us know what you think about it. The updated website is a tool for you to use whether you’re a landowner, producer, or interested in the other programs and projects that Central Platte NRD provides.
While you’re visiting cpnrd.org, there are two new additions that will be very helpful to irrigators. The first is a link to our Certified Acres & Transfers website at: cpnrd.gisworkshop.com. This certified acres website has also been overhauled and improved to provide a more user-friendly experience. It now allows permanent groundwater right transfers to be processed in a much timelier fashion; and if you’re considering transferring water rights, there are new tools to determine where a transfer is possible before setting up an appointment with NRD staff.
The last new link that you’ll want to visit on cpnrd.org is the new Crop Reporting Form. Producers in Central Platte NRD’s Phase II and III Groundwater Management Areas will now fill out their annual forms online. This form allows producers to log in throughout the year to record their test results and actual yields, print their fertilizer recommendations, and print any of their own past records.
The Central Platte board and staff are excited to provide these new tools.
Thank you for listening. This is Marcia Lee, keeping you informed about your natural resources and the way NRDs protect lives, protect property and protect the future.
