Recommended Motion

* To approve the next three variance applications of LPN-V-013-0323 for McDermott Farms for 17 acres in the SW 1/4, Section 4, T15N, R7E of the Todd Valley Subarea, for LPN-V-014-0388 for L & J Farms Inc for 24 acres in the NW1/4 of the NE1/4, Section 20, T14N, R8E of the Todd Valley subarea, and LPN-V-016-0446 for Lyle Herchenbach for 8 acres in the NW1/4 and SW1/4 of the SW 1/4, Section 4, T20N, R3W of the Newman Grove Subarea for a total of 49 acres

Actions Taken

Motion Passed:  * To approve the next three variance applications of LPN-V-013-0323 for McDermott Farms for 17 acres in the SW 1/4, Section 4, T15N, R7E of the Todd Valley Subarea, for LPN-V-014-0388 for L & J Farms Inc for 24 acres in the NW1/4 of the NE1/4, Section 20, T14N, R8E of the Todd Valley subarea, and LPN-V-016-0446 for Lyle Herchenbach for 8 acres in the NW1/4 and SW1/4 of the SW 1/4, Section 4, T20N, R3W of the Newman Grove Subarea for a total of 49 acres passed with a motion by Frank Pollard and a second by Mr. Robert Meduna.

2.A.2. Variance Requests in the Non-Hydrologically Connected Area (Normal Development Area)
Rationale

No new updates.

 

2.A.3. Variance Requests in the Restricted Development Areas
Rationale

Martin Erickson is asking the Water Committee to review the variance condition regarding the size of the monitoring well that is to be drilled on the northwest boundary of the field. Staff recommends a 4" well to allow adequate room for a dedicated sampling pump as well as a data logger. Mr. Erickson would like to have a 2" well drilled instead of the 4". The well will be approximately 220' and the cost is $6.50/ft for a 2" well and $15.00/ft for a 4" well. This results in a cost savings of ~$1,870 for Mr. Erickson.

Due to the variable water quality that is present in the Dakota aquifer, staff feels that a 4 inch diameter well is required in order to allow proper monitoring of the water quality and quantity in the aquifer.  The diameter of a dedicated pump is at least 1.5 inches leaving little room for water flow around the pump itself.  In addition the diameter of the connecting cables needs to be taken into account, to again allow adequate water flow within the pump casing of the monitoring well.

The Committee members discussed this and took no action to modify the variance condition for a 4 inch diameter monitoring well.

2.A.4. Well Permit Program
2.A.4.a. Well Permits Approved
Rationale

Accidental change. See Board meeting agenda for well permit breakdown.

2.A.4.b. David Rasmussen Well Permit
Rationale

David Rasmussen is requesting a new well to irrigate 0 new acres in the SW 1/4 of the SW 1/4, Section 7, T20N, R4W, Upper Newman Grove Subarea, Platte County. The ground was previously irrigated from well G-148938, but due to a family discrepancy, he can no longer irrigate the 62.4 certified irrigated acres with this well.  Attached is the well log from G-148938 as well as a map of the field in question.

Attachments
Recommended Motion

* To approve the supplemental well for David Rasmussen to be drilled in the SW1/4 of the SW1/4, Section 7, T20N, R4W, Upper Newman Grove Subarea for 62.4 certified irrigated acres

Actions Taken

2.A.5. Special Quantity Subareas
Rationale

Butler Saunders SQS Area (SQS #1)

There are 30 irrigation wells in this area.  25 of these have a flow meter; the other five wells were not used in 2016.  All 25 flow meter reporting forms have been returned.  Angle has completed the allocation calculations for these wells.  2017 will be the third year of their allocation for this SQS area.

 

Platte-Colfax SQS Area (SQS #2)

Flow meter cost-share applications continue to be received.  Flow meter reporting forms are also being returned – reports for about 30 registered irrigation wells are yet to be received.  Reporting deadline was November 1, 2016.  Staff is working on allocation calculations.

 

Recommended Motion

To begin the process of issuing cease and desist orders to the landowners on the attached list who have not submitted the required flow meter reports giving them until March 29 to turn in the requested reports or ask for a public hearing

Actions Taken

Motion Passed:  * To begin the process of issuing cease and desist orders to the landowners on the attached list who have not submitted the required flow meter reports passed with a motion by Jim McDermott and a second by Frank Pollard.

2.A.6. Lower Platte River Basin Water Management Plan Coalition (LPRBC)
Rationale

No new updates.

 

2.A.7. Voluntary Integrated Water Management Plan - LENRD and LPNNRD
Rationale

Staff met with Amy Zoller of DNR on February 23, 2017 and discussed our V-IMP between our two agencies. LPNNRD would like to move forward with our plan and no longer wait on possible changes involving the Lower Platte River Basin Coalition (LPRBC).  These changes (such as water transfers) will be incorporated into our V-IMP at a later date.  Since our V-IMP will only cover the hydrologically connected portions of our District, this V-IMP will be a subset of the District wide GWMA.

Some changes were made to the current V-IMP plan and these will be taken back to DNR for further review.

2.A.8. Cost Share Programs
2.A.8.a. Irrigation Well Sample Kits
Rationale

A couple of requests have been received for 2017.  Kits will be mailed out prior to the irrigation season.

 

2.A.8.b. Flow Meter Maintenance Program
Rationale

For our meter maintenance program via our contract we are responsible for providing the cable and crimper tools that are needed to make sure the meters are not tampered with. In order for this to happen we need the steel stainless twist sealing cable, 5 crimper tools, the lead seals, and also the die engravers that are used in the crimpers to stamp on the lead seals. The crimper tool will engrave the LPN logo and year it was inspected with the engraved dies. We contacted McCrometer for the order and the order has been placed. The total price for these items is $1562.10. Since we are inspecting a 1/4 of the meters per year we will need to purchase 4 more die engraved seals in 2021. The die engraved seals that were purchased on this order are for the years of 2017-2020. 

=============================================================

The contract between the LPNNRD and Tri-Cities Meter Inc. has been sent to our contractor for their review (see attached contract).

2.A.8.c. Flow Meter Cost Share in SQS #2
2.A.8.c.1. Question on Flow Meter Cost Share Program
Rationale

Mark Luchsinger has submitted a flow meter cost share application for improvements to his 2005 flow meter to bring it up to LPNNRD approved flow meter requirements.  He installed anti-reverse, changed units on the register from gallons to acre inches, etc. for a total cost of $538.50.

Points of discussion:

- Water comm. currently cost-share on flow meters previously installed.  This meter was installed in 2005 so we could pay him $770 which is from the WSF.

- Pay him 60% of $538.50 or $323.10 (which is from WSF).

- If part of our FMMP, cost of parts are to be paid by producer.  LPNNRD share would be for site visit and labor by Tri-City meters, but contract not signed yet.  Therefore $0 to Mr. Luchsinger.

After some discussion the Committee members felt that Mr. Luchsinger showed a good faith effort in upgrading his existing flow meter at a lower cost of $538.50 when purchase of a new flow meter would have cost $770 in cost share funds.

Recommended Motion

* To approve cost share funding of $538.50 to Mark Luchsinger to upgrade his existing flow meter

Actions Taken

Motion Passed:  * To approve cost share funding of $538.50 to Mark Luchsinger to upgrade his existing flow meter passed with a motion by Frank Pollard and a second by Jim McDermott.

2.A.8.c.2. Flow Meter Cost Share in SQS #2
Rationale

A second mailing was sent to producers in January to encourage them to take advantage of this cost-share program.  We have had a little up-tick in the number of applications received as a result.

 

As of February 28, 2017 we have received a total of 175 applications.  Several of these still need to be inspected to insure that the meter is installed properly.  

Seven well sites have applied for 2 meters each, but following motion of the Water Committee, only one meter per irrigation system will receive funding.

Therefore, for the March 13, 2017 Board Meeting, we will have a total of 8 cost-share applications to approve.

 

Water Sustainability Fund (WSF)
8 inch meters 6 x 8" meters or 6 x $770 = $4,620
6 inch meters 2 x 6" meters or 2 x $577 = $1,154
WSF Total $5,774

So Running Total WSF Grant = $118,188 of $200,000 grant
So Remaining Total of WSF Grant = $81,812

 

LPNNRD For GWEL Cooperators
8 inch meter 1 x 8" meters or 1 x $230 = $230
6 inch meter 0 x 6" meters or 0 x $172 = $0
Carry over (8 inch meter) 0 x 8" meter or 0 x $230= $0
LPNNRD Total $230

 

Total For Flow Meter Cost Share Program
WSF & LPNNRD For approval at March 13, 2017 Board Meeting = $6,004

 

=====================================================

Staff plan to send in our first reimbursement request for our Flow Meter cost share grant to the WSF later this week.  The request will be for $96,226.

 

Recommended Motion

*To approve payment of $6,004 of cost share funding with $230 from LPNNRD and $5,774 from the WSF for the following individuals:
Wemhoff, Milton for $770;
Siefken, Kathleen for $1,000;
Noonan, Joan for $770;
Brandt, Susan for $770;
Goedeken Trust, Paul for $577;
Cattau, Clifford for $577;
Cattau, Arlyn for $770; and
Kasik, Marvin for $770

Actions Taken

Motion Passed:  To approve payment of $6,004 of cost share funding with $230 from LPNNRD and $5,774 from the WSF for the following individuals: Wemhoff, Milton for $770; Siefken, Kathleen for $1,000; Noonan, Joan for $770; Brandt, Susan for $770; Goedeken Trust, Paul for $577; Cattau, Clifford for $577; Cattau, Arlyn for $770; and Kasik, Marvin for $770 passed with a motion by Jim McDermott and a second by Frank Pollard.

2.A.8.c.3. Expansion of Flow Meter Cost Share Program
Rationale

We have seven applications that were recently received (which still need processing) and all of these are 8 inch meters.  If later approved this would make the running total for our WSF grant with ~$76,400 remaining. Staff recommends opening this up the SQS #1 producers.  We will need to go back to the WSF to get their approval.

 

Recommended Motion

* To request the Water Sustainability Fund grant to approve expansion of the Flow Meter Cost Share Program to producers in the Butler - Saunders Special Quantity Subarea (SQS #1) and to producers to install meters one mile outside the sections of the SQS #2 border

Actions Taken

Motion Passed:  * To request the Water Sustainability Fund grant to approve expansion of the Flow Meter Cost Share Program to producers in the Butler - Saunders Special Quantity Subarea (SQS #1) and to producers to install meters one mile outside the sections of the SQS #2 border passed with a motion by Jim McDermott and a second by Frank Pollard.

2.A.8.c.4. No Flow Meter Installed in SQS #2
Rationale

Letters and cost share forms were sent to the nine producers (on 12 irrigation wells) who have not yet installed flow meters (see attached list).  As of March 1, 2017 one of these people has applied for cost share, Lawrence Kasik.  Cease & Desist action should be considered on the other individuals and whether or not we want to impose an acre inch penalty for not installing a flow meter last irrigation season.

The average water use in SQS #2 was around 4.5 to 5 acre inches during the summer of 2016.  Committee members discussed imposing a water use allocation penalty of 9 acre inches on those producers who failed to install flow meters.

Recommended Motion

To begin the process of issuing cease and desist orders to the following individuals:
Bryce Grotelueschen,
Martin Grotelueschen,
Robert Beckstrom,
Dale Lutjens,
Dean Goehring,
Ricky Heller,
Terry Lutjens,
William Biermann,
for failing to install flow meters in the SQS #2 area

3.B.1. Eastern Nebraska Water Resources Assessment (ENWRA)
3.B.1.a. ENWRA Annual Membership
Rationale

Attached is our Annual membership in ENWRA.  

 

Recommended Motion

To approve payment of $20,850 to the Eastern Nebraska Water Resources Assessment (ENWRA) for annual dues for LPNNRD

Actions Taken

Motion Passed:  To approve payment of $20,850 to the Eastern Nebraska Water Resources Assessment (ENWRA) for annual dues for LPNNRD passed with a motion by Frank Pollard and a second by Jim McDermott.

3.B.1.b. ENWRA Geo-Cloud Program
Rationale

Attached is the latest Geo-Cloud contract with ENWRA.  ENWRA obtained a grant from the WSF to fund the majority of money for the Geo-Cloud program.  This will take all the AEM data collected in the State, C&SD test hole data, registered well logs of selected high capacity wells, NRD's ground water energy level measurements, and MODFLOW software to model the aquifers in selected areas of Nebraska.

Denmark has already developed software to perform these mapping capabilities (called Geo-Scenes) and this project will now be designed to also work in Nebraska.  Part of this program will allow the general public to create maps as well.

 

 

Recommended Motion

To approve the Geo-Cloud contract at a cost of $3,400 for each year, FY18, FY19, and FY20 for a total of $10,200 to ENWRA as the LPNNRD portion for the Geo-Cloud program

Actions Taken

Motion Passed:  To accept the Geo-Cloud contract and approve payment of $3,400 for each year of FY18, FY19, and FY20 for a total of $10,200 to ENWRA as the LPNNRD portion for the Geo-Cloud program passed with a motion by Jim McDermott and a second by Frank Pollard.

3.B.2. Lower Platte River Consortium
Rationale

The latest meeting of the Lower Platte River Consortium met at LPSNRD on February 23, 2017.  Agenda and minutes of the last meeting are attached.  The next steps are to submit a work plan to the Bureau of Reclamation (BOR) in February, an annual report to WSF, and obtaining property access for the instrumentation of river sites during the Spring of this year.  The proposed monitoring sites are on the attached map.

 

3.C. GROUND WATER ENERGY LEVELS
Rationale

Staff will begin the Spring readings from our GWEL network later this month.

 

3.D. WATER USE REPORTS
Rationale

482 water use reports were sent out on 2/23/2017. Staff is recommending that all permits and variances that were approved prior to May 8th 2008 be excluded from future water use report mailings if they were only reporting the hours that the well was on. This makes up 43 of the 703 total reports. Also, efforts are being made to bring well permits and variances that have not installed a flow meter into compliance. 

 

Recommended Motion

* To approve a policy change that well owners using hour meters to report water use before May 8, 2008 will no longer be required to submit those reports to the LPNNRD

Actions Taken

Motion Passed:  * To approve a policy change that well owners using hour meters to report water use before May 8, 2008 will no longer be required to submit those reports to the LPNNRD passed with a motion by Frank Pollard and a second by Jim McDermott.
