The Nebraska Water Center will hold their annual Water Tour again this summer. From Monday, June 19, to Thursday, June 22, attendees will explore Northeast Nebraska and gain first-hand experience with the water management practices and water quality challenges of that region of the state. Tour stops include the Norfolk Riverfront development, the Bazile Groundwater Management Area, Gavins Point Dam, Ashfall Fossil Beds and much more. 

The Water Tour was first held in 1975. The tours are designed to enhance understanding and appreciation for water management in Nebraska and beyond, providing an educational experience for anyone interested in natural resource management.

The 2023 Water Tour is being hosted by the Nebraska Water Center and the Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District.
