“At the first day’s symposium, panels will discuss what basin groups have concluded about state water policy and goals, objectives and problem areas in each basin,” said Lincoln attorney Lee Orton, who helped plan the symposium agenda with Prairie Fire publisher W. Don Nelson and Nebraska Water Center director Chittaranjan Ray.
Among the problems experienced in water management and planning for each of the state’s major river basins will be water supply, political structures, past management and development characteristics and other topics.
