Senator Fears More Lawsuits with Limits on Ground Water Irrigation

Posted: Updated:

A Nebraska lawmaker fears more lawsuits will be filed if the state tries to limit groundwater irrigation near the Republican River.

The state says drought conditions have required extra conservation in the river basin. However, State Senator Mark Christensen of Imperial said that more lawsuits appear pretty likely if the state limits groundwater irrigation.

The state already has been sued by Kansas over use of the Republican River.
