Water conservation remains priority for Nebraska farmers
Nebraska officials say dry conditions will require many farmers along the Republican River to limit their water usage more next year.
The extra conservation measures will ensure enough water flows downstream to Kansas.
In the past, Kansas has accused Nebraska of using more of the Republican River's water than it's entitled to.
The issue has led to two lawsuits between the states.

Upper and Lower Republican River NRD's will need to impose additional water conservation measures next year.
The Middle Republican NRD, however, will not.
