  The Economic Engine

     Our farms, families, many regional businesses, employers, local schools and governments rely on irrigation from surface and groundwater sources for approximately 475,000 acres of cropland in the North Platte Valley. At an estimated $1,087 per acre, irrigation produces more than $516.4 million a year in crops alone. This does not include a multiplier for jobs and other mutual benefits, like quality of life and affiliated businesses that rely on a consistent water supply.
