Nebraska Revised Statute 46-2,116.01

Chapter 46


Application for instream appropriation; use of stored water; study.

If the director determines that there is insufficient unappropriated natural flow available for an application for an instream appropriation and if the applicant consents, the department may conduct a study to determine whether the instream flow needs can be met through the use of stored water in new storage facilities. The study shall address the availability of storage sites, the estimated cost of providing any required storage, and such other findings and conclusions as the department deems appropriate.
