NRD Approves Temporary Stay on New Wells

Due to concerns about the sustainability of groundwater supplies in the area, the Lower Big Blue Natural Resources District Board of Directors has imposed an immediate 180-day moratorium, or stay, on the construction of new wells and the increase of irrigated acres in the District.

The primary purpose for the stay is to provide the NRD with an opportunity to revise and implement its Groundwater Management Plan, a process the Board has been working through with Olsson Associates. While the LBBNRD has monitored groundwater levels for years to help determine sustainability, it has also received a growing number of reports about the reduced capacity or failure of several domestic wells in the District.

Couple that with the increase in the number of new wells constructed and the dry conditions in recent years, and the need for an updated plan becomes even more pressing.
