The Kansas Nebraska Blue River Compact has the following streamflow targets for stateline gauging stations.  If the rivers fall below the agreement levels the Nebraska Department of Natural Resources would shut down junior rights, then senior rights.  Junior rights were shutdown in 4 years during the 90's.  Senior rights have never been shut down.  Senior rights were recorded prior to November 1, 1968
