Tri-Basin NRD Changes Focus

The Tri-Basin NRD has dropped Site 1 from consideration for the Sand Creek Recharge reservoir project and will focus instead on Sites 2 and 3.
The decision to eliminate Site 1 from consideration was made at the Tri -Basin board meeting held Tuesday evening at the district office in Holdrege.
