Western Water Use Management Modeling

Western Water Use Management (WWUM) Modeling is an effort designed to provide the North Platte Natural Resources District, South Platte Natural Resources District, and Nebraska Department of Natural Resources with a set of crop consumptive use, ground water, and surface water modeling tools to aid in management of river, stream, and aquifer systems within the modeling area. This document serves as a chronological index of the various reports and documentation, including authorship where appropriate, that have been completed for this effort.
