    Nebraska officials should monitor this situation closely, now and in coming years, to make sure the water volume continues to meet the requirements under a South Platte River .   Basins in Central Nebraska The basins in Central Nebraska were assessed as part of the NAWQA program. The assessment was based on the area downstream of the Platte River fork near the North Platte in Nebraska. This was a 30, square mile study unit involved collecting and analyzing water chemistry, land use, hydrology, aquatic life and stream.

    Six years ago, Nebraska agreed to leave more water in the river for endangered and threatened species like the whooping crane. Some of that's already happening, but more is needed. At a meeting last week, Ron Bishop, manager of the Central Platte Natural Resources District, described a new proposal. People living along the Platte River will want to watch for rising water and move livestock and other necessities to higher ground. Platte River Hydrographs.

The Platte River Valley of Nebraska is a vitally important staging area for midcontinent waterfowl during spring migration. Wetland and cropland resources in this region are important to waterfowl for obtaining sufficient energy to complete migration and for storing nutrient reserves (primarily fat and protein) for reproduction.

Significant lowland flooding is occuring as the river is out of its banks. In addition the Papio NRD access site at Highway 64 is flooded. The river is at bankfull and water will begin to overtop the natural river banks. Photos (1) Looking downstream from Highway 64.

Lake McConaughy is Nebraska’s largest lake at almost 22 miles long, three miles wide, cover surface acres. It was created as a result of the building of Kingsley Dam on the North Platte River.

Nebraska's wetland resources are as diverse and dynamic as those of any state in the nation. They include marshes, lakes, river and stream backwaters, oxbows, wet meadows, fens, forested swamps, and seep areas. (Below top) Platte River, Buffalo County.
