Water & Natural Resources

Water is arguably Nebraska’s most valuable natural resource. The Ogallala Aquifer and our state’s surface water resources supply clean drinking water to our citizens, water to irrigate our crops and water for recreation. The interaction between water, soil, air and sunlight helps Nebraskans feed the world as crop and livestock producers. As demand increases, so does the need for preserving the quantity and quality of our soil and water resources, and the sensible use of natural resources to feed and benefit mankind.

This requires good stewardship of natural resources that are important for crop and livestock production, as well as for those businesses that rely upon production agriculture. At Jacobsen Orr, our attorneys understand the various competing uses for our state’s water and other natural resources, as well as the complex and dynamic federal and state rules and regulations that govern its use, acquisition and transfer. Jacobsen Orr’s attorneys have extensive experience in helping our business, individual and municipal clients navigate the legal and regulatory issues that arise in a variety of contexts.
