Niobrara Basin Study
The Niobrara River Basin Study (Basin Study) engages a broad spectrum of stakeholders to explore complex water management issues in a collaborative setting with the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) and the Nebraska Department of Natural Resources. The Basin Study provided an opportunity for Reclamation and Nebraska Department of Natural Resources to attend a series of meetings with stakeholders to discuss resource challenges. These meetings offered a venue for gathering input, addressing concerns, and exploring shared responsibilities. Discussions ranged from important on-the-ground field experiences to high-level technical perspectives. A number of varied interests were represented at stakeholder meetings, including irrigation, drinking water supply, fish and wildlife, hydropower, and recreation.
