Since the levees became the responsibility of the LPSNRD, they have dedicated resources and staff to the operation and maintenance of over 13 miles of levees in Lincoln.
Over its lifetime the Salt Creek and Tributaries Flood Control Project has successfully fought flooding and reduced risk for Lincoln.
Upon completion of levee construction in 1967 the USACE handed operation and maintenance responsibilities over to the local sponsor, now known as the Lower Platte South Natural Resources District (LPSNRD).
Construction on the Salt Creek Levee System and flood control channel began in 1964 by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). The system is comprised of seven independent segments separated by tributary locations.
