New rules for northeast Nebraska irrigators

Some northeast Nebraska farmers will have to operate under new irrigation restrictions starting this year.  Thursday night, the Lower Elkhorn Natural Resources District Board approved new rules for parts of Madison, Pierce and Wayne Counties.  Farmers will be limited as to how much water they can use and they'll have to install groundwater measuring equipment to monitor water levels.  The restrictions are the result of hundreds of complaints the board received last summer about wells going dry.
