Ogallala Aquifer Initiative

In FY 2017, the Ogallala Aquifer Initiative (OAI) focused its efforts to target geographic areas (focus areas) within the Ogallala Aquifer that support targeted, local efforts to conserve the quality and quantity of water in defined areas of the aquifer. 

Nebraska has four OAI Project Areas: Central Platte, Little Blue, Upper Big Blue and the Middle Republican Natural Resources Districts. View the map of the Nebraska OAI Project Areas here.
