LINCOLN, Nebraska — Helicopters will fly back and forth across parts of eastern Nebraska this spring to map out groundwater levels.
The Lincoln Journal Star reports (http://bit.ly/1N2TxtQ ) several natural resource districts hired the helicopter to get a better idea of how much groundwater is available.
The low-level flights will cross parts of Butler, Saunders, Seward, Sarpy, Douglas, Lancaster, Cass, Otoe, Johnson, Nemaha, Richardson, Pawnee and Gage counties.
The helicopter will carry electronic instruments on a steel frame suspended 100 feet below the craft.
