Tri-Basin NDR hears results of ground water study; Odessa Improvement study at meeting PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 13 March 2013 18:21

The Monthly Tri-Basin NRD Board of Directors meeting was held in Holgrege.
    A public hearing was held regarding acquiring property for the proposed Sand Creek Recharge Reservoir project in eastern Kearney County. Several residents of Kearney County provided testimony on the project. Following the hearing, directors voted to order appraisals on two properties that may be affected by the proposed reservoir.
    Luke Dutcher of Miller & Associates presented findings of an engineering study conducted on the Odessa Improvement Project Area (IPA). The study proposes installing larger culverts at the intersection of S Road and Road 747, allowing water from the area’s high water table and rain events to flow north through a drainage ditch to the south channel of the Platte River. Several landowners affected by the Odessa IPA were in attendance at the meeting and spoke both in favor of and against the project. Directors decided to send letters to all affected landowners with an updated project budget and give them another opportunity to express their opinions about the project, with a response deadline of June 1, 2014.
