ALMA, Neb. — The Lower Republican Natural Resources District will let farmers transfer some of their water allotment from one field to another. The district board held an emergency meeting Tuesday in Alma because so many farmers had appealed to the district to let them pump more water, Hastings television station KHAS said. The National Drought Mitigation Center says the river basin remains in extreme or exceptional drought.
