Resource Assessments: Rapid Watershed Assessment (by 8-digit Hydrologic Unit Subbasin):
The Natural Resources Conservation Service in Nebraska is producing Watershed or Subbasin Profiles to provide a natural resource snapshot and overview of each Nebraska 8-Digit Hydrologic Unit. The Subbasin Profiles organize into one document information that local conservationists, landowners and others can use to: identify conservation opportunities and direct technical and financial resources to the appropriate subbasins. They provide a concise description of the subbasins’ natural resources, resource concerns, conservation needs, and ability to resolve natural resource issues. These profiles organize into one document what most local conservationists and landowners already know about their watersheds.
Landuse and land cover
Common Resource Areas
Soil, stream, precipitation data
Census and Social Data
Progress/Status of Conservation by Land Use
The data found within these profiles were collected through the Census of Agriculture, numerous Nebraska State Agencies, and Nebraska NRCS statewide databases on conservation practices. The profiles are designed to be use as a tool to help conservation leaders in Nebraska identify conservation opportunities and direct technical and financial resources to the appropriate subbasins.
