The first increment plan was completed in 2017. The Plan's purposes include:
- Providing guidance and a framework for Lower Platte River Basin Coalition members to develop water use policies and practices that contribute to the protection of existing surface and groundwater uses, while allowing for future water development.
- Assisting in the development and maintenance of a water supply and use inventory, based on the best available data and analysis.
- Providing consistency and information for incorporation into individual NRD Integrated Management Plans.
