DAVENPORT, Neb. (AP) —
Members of a Little Blue Natural Resources District committee have
rejected plans for a dam north of Davenport in southern Nebraska's
Tuesday's vote was 6-2 against the proposal.
The Little Blue board of directors last fall OK'd a re-evaluation of a project envisioned more than 30 years ago.
primary plan called for a reservoir with a surface area around 620
acres at a cost of $23.2 million. Its benefits would have included
groundwater recharge, flood control and recreation.
A smaller dam,
about one-third of that size and without recreation uses, had also been
proposed. Its projected cost was $11.8 million.
