NRD Information

A Unique System

Nebraska's system of local natural resources management is unique in the United States. Unlike the county-wide districts found in most states, Nebraska's Natural Resources Districts are based on river basin boundaries, enabling them to approach natural resources management on a watershed basis.

Local Control, Local Solutions

There are 23 NRDs in Nebraska. Each district is autonomous, governed by a locally elected board of directors. While NRDs share a common set of responsibilities (see NRD Programs), each district sets its own priorities and develops its own programs to best serve local needs.
