This statute establishes Natural Resources District, encompassing all of the area of the state, to conserve, protect, develop, and manage Nebraska's natural resources. These districts replace and unify the functions previously performed by soil and water conservation districts, watershed conservancy districts, watershed districts, advisory watershed improvement boards, and watershed planning boards. The districts supplement existing rural water districts, drainage districts, reclamation districts, and irrigation districts. The remainder of this section provides regulations pertaining to the boundaries, membership, and powers (including bond issuance) of districts.
