    Irrigators, agribusinesses, community leaders, conservation organizations, the North Platte Natural Resources District, based in Scottsbluff, Nebraska and other western Nebraskans incorporated the new North Platte Valley Water Association in August 2012 to "protect, preserve and promote" water resources and irrigated agriculture in the North Platte Valley.

     Through education, outreach and government affairs efforts across Nebraska, the NPVWA goal is to continue use and conservation of the North Platte Valley's integral economic engine - the North Platte River system and its ancillary water resources.

     Irrigation in the Valley produces more than $516.4 million a year in crops alone. Irrigation demands are great across Nebraska, particularly in the semi-arid climate of the Panhandle.
