“….encourage practical watershed management through team-based approaches to technology, practice and community.”

The Nebraska Water Balance Alliance (NEWBA) has a continuing commitment to promoting sustainable water solutions that safeguard our economy and way of life.  We believe that innovation and broad-based collaboration are the keys to ensuring a legacy of water for the future, and that all Nebraskans can participate in water solutions that safeguard our economy and quality of life.  Every Nebraskan will benefit from good water stewardship.

NEWBA provides unique opportunities to promote practical innovations in water management.  We wish to maximize our impact by partnering with entities having goals and objectives similar to ours, advancing the goals of both partners; and by continuing to facilitate forums in which new ideas are presented, while providing a bridge that values traditional ideas and practices currently in use.  NEWBA’s work is increasingly important as new technologies emerge and the need for water accountability grows.

NEWBA’s mission is to “encourage practical watershed management through team-based approaches to technology, practice and community,” with the vision of “water for generations.”  As new ideas and tools emerge, NEWBA is dedicated to evaluating how they benefit farm water management and how we can work with the community to promote their effective use.

NEWBA is actively pursuing several projects that will benefit Nebraska water for generations. Please see our “Projects” page to view current and past projects that NEWBA has been active in.
