The Nebraska Water Center’s 2021 conference is now in the books. Entitled “The Shape of Water in Western Nebraska,” the conference was held August 16th at the Panhandle Research and Extension Center in Scottsbluff. An esteemed lineup of Nebraska water leaders discussed water infrastructure in the panhandle, western Nebraska’s unique hydrogeology, and innovations in water and agricultural management. Attendees also enjoyed live jazz at an evening banquet at the Legacy of the Plains Museum.

On August 17th and 18th, a post-conference water tour—sponsored by the Scottsbluff/Gering United Chamber of Commerce—traversed the North Platte River basin making stops at dams, ranches, fish farms, potato processors, and vital waterbodies like Lake McConaughy.
