UENRD Says Moratorium Remains on Existing Irrigated Acres and New Well Development

The Lower Platte River Fully Appropriated Designation which includes the Elkhorn and Loup basins was reversed on April 8, 2009. 

However, due to the passage of LB 483 on April 6th, 2009 those areas still cannot develop additional acres to be irrigated by existing irrigation systems and no new high capacity well permits can be issued for new acre development.
