Papio-Missouri River Natural Resources District


Government Agencies


The Papio-Missouri River Natural Resources District and Nebraska’s other Natural Resources Districts were created by the Nebraska Legislature and began serving the people of the state in 1972. The legislature combined 154 special purpose resource management entities, including county soil and water conservation districts, drainage districts and watershed boards into 24 NRDs. In 1989, this number was reduced to 23 NRDs through a merger of the Papio NRD and the Middle Missouri Tributaries NRD. Districts are unique to Nebraska. No other state has a system for managing its natural resources identical to our NRDs.
