A proposed Siouxland rural water district continues to get support from its potential customers. The Lower Elkhorn Natural Resources District Board got an update Tuesday on a proposed rural water district that would benefit about eleven hundred homes in Madison, Stanton and Platte Counties.

NRD staff members say they have received an overwhelming response from residents wanting to participate in a feasibility study for the district. Staff members say that's because the study will determine if thousands of northeast Nebraskans will get much-needed relief for their dry wells.

"We will not have the study done until the first of the year. Of course, we're anxiously awaiting the results of that, to see if this is a feasible, viable project," said Stan Staab, LENRD General Manager.

The LENRD Board approved a $100 fee for residents to participate in a water district survey that will help pay for the study. The board is also planning three informational open houses on the district in April.
