Nebraska Chemigation Act
The goal of the Nebraska Chemigation Act is to protect the groundwater and surface waters of Nebraska from contamination by fertilizers or pesticides. To accomplish this goal, the Act provided the legal requirements for the future use of chemigation as a means of nutrient or pesticide application.
The Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality developed and implemented the rules and regulations necessary for irrigators to utilize the practice. Under the NDEQ rules, Nebraska's Natural Resources Districts were given the responsibility to manage the chemigation permit component that ensures that proper safety equipment is present and functioning properly.
