May 2012
Nebraska Life;May/Jun2012, Vol. 16 Issue 3, p39
The article discusses the experience of both the people and wildlife population in western Nebraska during the Great Flood of 2011. It claims that the decision by officials of the Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District to open the floodgates of the water reservoir to release water from Lake McConaughy resulted in flooding in areas in Scottsbluff, Gering and Terrytown. The flood affected the over 180 animals at the Riverside Discovery Center, formerly the Riverside Zoo.
