Lower Platte River Area
This study will focus on providing flood protection to public and private property within the Lower Platte River corridor, defined as the reach of the Platte River from Columbus to Plattsmouth, Nebraska. While flood protection is the primary goal of this study, it will also explore opportunities to maximize recreational opportunities and tourism, available water supply, improved water quality and habitat preservation. Study recommendations will include measures that protect public and private property, enhance economic development, and promote private investment to create jobs along the Platte River corridor.
