Unfortunately, sites with streambank erosion is a familiar site in eastern Nebraska. Erosion is a natural process but can be accelerated by urban development, and loss of vegetation. Both rural and urban environments throughout the district are affected by erosion. The Papio-Missouri River NRD places a high priority on working to keep our rivers, lakes, and streams free of harmful pollutants brought on through the process of erosion! Check out our webpage to learn more on projects the NRD is working on to prevent erosion: https://www.papionrd.org/water-quality-supply/lakes-and-streams-water-quality/.
