CENTRAL PLATTE NATURAL

RESOURCES DISTRICT

ORDER

ADOPTING THE SECOND

INCREMENT BASIN-WIDE

PLAN FOR JOINT

INTEGRATED WATER

RESOURCES MANAGEMENT

OF OVERAPPROPRIATED

PORTIONS OF THE PLATTE

RIVER BASIN, NEBRASKA

BACKGROUND

1. On September 15, 2004, the

Department designated the Platte

River Basin upstream of the Kear-

ney Canal diversion, the North

Platte River Basin including Pump-

kinseed Creek, and the South

Platte River Basin including Lodge-

pole Creek as overappropriated.

Portions of the North Platte Natural

Resources District (NPRND), South

Platte Natural Resources District

(SPNRD), Twin Platte Natural Re-

sources District (TPNRD), Central

Platte Natural Resources District

(CPNRD), and the Tri-Basin Natural

Resources District (TBNRD), col-

lectively known as the Districts,

were designated as overappropr-

iated.

2. Beginning in 2005, the Depart-

ment and the Districts developed

the first increment Basin-Wide Plan

For Joint Integrated Water Re-

sources Management Of Overap-

propriated Portions Of The Platte

River Basin, Nebraska (Plan or Ba-

sin-Wide Plan) pursuant to all ap-

plicable State statutes, in consulta-

tion and collaboration with a group

of stakeholders, which became ef-

fective on September 11, 2009.

3. In 2016, in accordance with

Neb. Rev. Stat. § 46-715(5)(d)(iii)

and the first increment Basin-Wide

Plan, the Department and the Dis-

tricts initiated a technical analysis

to determine whether the measures

adopted in the first increment Ba-

sin-Wide Plan and individual NRD’s

integrated management plans were

sufficient to offset depletions due

to water uses initiated after July 1,

1997, and whether the measures

adopted in the first increment have

returned the Districts to a fully ap-

propriated condition.

4. Based on the results of this

technical analysis, the Department

and the Districts jointly determined

that a second 10-year Plan was

necessary to meet the goals and

objectives of the Plan and reduce

the overall difference between cur-

rent and fully appropriated levels of

development in the basin.

5. Beginning in 2016, the Depart-

ment and the Districts, pursuant to

Neb. Rev. Stat. § 46-715(5)(d)(iv),

consulted and collaborated with a

group of stakeholders on the devel-

opment of the second increment

Plan. The stakeholder group con-

sisted of statutorily required entities

and other entities that were identi-

fied by the District and the Depart-

ment to be included in the group.

Through this process of consulta-

tion and collaboration, the Depart-

ment and District jointly developed

a second increment Plan in accord-

ance with the Ground Water Man-

agement and Protection Act, par-

ticularly Neb. Rev. Stat. § 46-715.

6. Agreement was not reached by

the Stakeholder Group on the con-

tents of the Basin-Wide Plan. Con-

sequently, pursuant to Neb. Rev.

Stat. § 46-715 (5)(b), the Districts

and the Department continued to

work on the Basin-Wide Plan.

Agreement between the Districts

and the Department was reached

on the proposed goals, objectives,

and other components of the Ba-

sin-Wide Plan. Letters acknowl-

edging the agreement were ex-

changed between the Districts and

the Department. No groundwater or

surface water controls are con-

tained in the proposed Basin-Wide

Plan.

7. After published notices, the

Districts and the Department jointly

held five public hearings on July 15

through July 18, 2019, on the pro-

posed second increment Plan, in

accordance with Neb. Rev. Stat. §

46-743.

8. The Department consulted

with the Nebraska Game and Parks

Commission (NGPC) in accordance

with Neb. Rev. Stat. § 37-807. As

stated in the July 15, 2019, re-

sponse, NGPC determined that the

adoption of the proposed second

increment Plan would have no ad-

verse effect on threatened and en-

dangered species or their habitat.

9. Following the hearings, the De-

partment and the Districts jointly

considered the testimony and ex-

hibits provided, made non-substa-

ntive typographical modifications,

added to page four the appropriate

dates to the placeholders indicating

the effective date of the Plan and

the time period of the second in-

crement, and agreed to adopt and

implement the proposed second in-

crement Basin-Wide Plan.

ORDER

It is hereby ORDERED that the

Second Increment Basin-Wide Plan

for Joint Integrated Water Re-

sources Management of Overap-

propriated Portions of the Platte

River Basin, Nebraska is hereby

ADOPTED by the Department and

will become effective on Septem-

ber 11, 2019.

CENTRAL PLATTE NATURAL

RESOURCES DISTRICT

ORDER

ADOPTING THE INTEGRATED

MANAGEMENT PLAN, AND

ASSOCIATED GROUNDWATER

CONTROLS, JOINTLY

DEVELOPED BY THE

CENTRAL PLATTE NATURAL

RESOURCES DISTRICT AND

THE NEBRASKA

DEPARTMENT OF

NATURAL RESOURCES

BACKGROUND

1. On September 15, 2004, the

Nebraska Department of Natural

Resources (Department) desig-

nated a portion of the Central

Platte Natural Resources (District)

as overappropriated.

2. On September 30, 2004, the

Department issued an order of final

determination that the hydrologi-

cally connected groundwater and

surface water within the entire geo-

graphic area of the District was

fully appropriated.

3. The Department and the Dis-

trict jointly developed Integrated

Management Plans (IMPs) for the

first increment in accordance with

Neb. Rev. Stat. §§ 46-715 –

46-718, 46-720, with effective

dates of September 15, 2009, and

May 21, 2012.

4. In 2018, in accordance with

Chapter 6, of the first increment

IMP, dated May 21, 2012, the De-

partment and the District initiated a

technical analysis to determine

whether the measures adopted in

the first increment IMP were suffi-

cient to offset depletions due to

water uses initiated after July 1,

1997 (also referred to as post-1997

depletions), and whether the meas-

ures adopted in the first increment

IMP have returned the District to a

fully appropriated condition.

5. Based on the results of this

technical analysis, a subsequent

ten-year increment is required in

accordance with Neb. Rev. Stat. §

46-715(5)(d)(iv) to achieve the goals

and objectives of the first incre-

ment IMP.

6. Beginning in 2018, the Depart-

ment and the District consulted and

collaborated on the development of

the second increment IMP with a

group of stakeholders. The stake-

holder group consisted of statuto-

rily required entities and other enti-

ties which were identified by the

District and the Department to be

included in the group. Through this

process of consultation an collabo-

ration the Department and District

jointly developed a second incre-

ment IMP in accordance with the

Ground Water Management and

Protection Act, particularly Neb.

Rev. Stat. §§ 46-715 – 46-718,

46-720, 46-740.

7. The District and the Depart-

ment reached agreement on (1) the

proposed goals and objectives of

the IMP, (2) the proposed geo-

graphic area to be subject to the

controls, and (3) the surface water

and groundwater controls, and in-

centive programs that are pro-

posed for adoption and implemen-

tation.

8. On July 15, 2019, pursuant to

notices published in accordance

with Neb. Rev. Stat. § 46-743, the

District and the Department jointly

held a public hearing in Grand Is-

land on the proposed IMP.

9. The Department consulted

with the Nebraska Game and Parks

Commission (NGPC) in accordance

with Neb. Rev. Stat. § 37-807. As

stated in the July 12, 2019, re-

sponse, NGPC determined that the

adoption of the proposed IMP

would have no adverse effect on

threatened and endangered

species or their habitat.

10. Following the hearing, the

Department and the District jointly

considered testimony provided,

and agreed to adopt and imple-

ment; the proposed IMP; the sur-

face water controls; the ground-

water controls; and incentive pro-

grams proposed in the IMP, with-

out modifications.

GROUNDWATER WATER

CONTROLS ADOPTED

1. The following groundwater

controls will remain effective within

the Central Platte Natural Re-

sources District Integrated Man-

agement Plan:

a. Moratorium on the issuance of

water well construction permits and

on new or expanded groundwater

uses.

b. Certification of groundwater

uses by the District.

c. Provisions for groundwater

transfers.

d. System of accounting and off-

set requirements for new and ex-

panded municipal use.

e. System of accounting and off-

set requirements for new and ex-

panded non-municipal use.

ORDER

It is hereby ORDERED that the

integrated management plan for

the Central Platte Natural Re-

sources District and the ground-

water water controls in the plan are

hereby ADOPTED by the District

and will become effective on Sep-

tember 11, 2019.
