G93-1188 Financing Environmental Quality Programs In Nebraska, Roy Frederick

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide describes the role and responsibilities of the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality. Included are funding sources and environmental issues in Nebraska.

The Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has the primary responsibility for protecting and improving the quality of Nebraska's air, land and water resources. Many of the programs administered by DEQ are mandated and funded--in whole or in part--by the federal government.

In discharging its responsibilities, DEQ receives input from the state Environmental Quality Council, a 16-member panel appointed by the governor. Fifteen of the 16 council members represent a specific industry or interest affected by ...

G93-1128 Understanding Groundwater, William L. Kranz, Delynn R. Hay, James W. Goeke

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide provides information on how groundwater exists, where it exists, and how it moves. Key definitions are highlighted. Water is the life blood of every living creature on earth. Approximately 70 percent of the earth's surface is covered with water. Through the wonders of nature, water can take on many different forms, from the water we drink, to the ice we use to chill a glass of lemonade, to the water vapor used to steam clean equipment. It is easy to understand the significance water plays in our lives, but it may be much more difficult to understand ...


G93-1175 Sanitation For Fly And Disease Management At Confined Livestock Facilities, John B. Campbell, Duane Rice Jan 1993

G93-1175 Sanitation For Fly And Disease Management At Confined Livestock Facilities, John B. Campbell, Duane Rice

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide describes flies found in confined livestock facilities, how they breed, and how they can be controlled.

The stable fly and house fly are the major insect pests at confined livestock units. The stable fly has a piercing-type mouthpart which is used to pierce the skin to obtain a blood meal. House flies do not bite because they have a sponging-type mouthpart with which they feed on semi-liquid material. The life cycles of the two species are similar, consisting of eggs, larvae (maggots), pupae, and the adult. During summer months the stable fly completes its life cycle in about ...

G93-1137 Interfacings, Rose Marie Tondl, Kathleen Tolman

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide tells how to select, prepare and apply interfacing to enhance garment quality.

Interfacing is a supportive fabric placed between the facing and garment fabric. Although hidden from view, it is a critical part of clothing construction. The necessity for interfacing is dependent on garment detail, fabric type and desired effects. It can make the difference between a professional-looking garment and a disappointment.


G93-1182 Best Management Practices For Agricultural Pesticides To Protect Water Resources, Robert J. Wright, J. F. Witkowski, Larry D. Schulze Jan 1993

G93-1182 Best Management Practices For Agricultural Pesticides To Protect Water Resources, Robert J. Wright, J. F. Witkowski, Larry D. Schulze

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide discusses what happens to pesticides after application, factors affecting pesticide movement, and best management practices to minimize the potential for pesticide contamination of ground and surface water.

Users of pesticides and other agricultural chemicals must take appropriate precautions to reduce the risks of moving these materials into ground or surface water. The primary consideration should be whether the chemical is needed. If pesticides are needed, then the characteristics of the chemical, the sensitivity of the application site and the method of application should be considered.

G93-1187 Financing Natural Resources Programs In Nebraska, Roy Frederick Jan 1993

G93-1187 Financing Natural Resources Programs In Nebraska, Roy Frederick

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide describes the regulatory agencies of Nebraska's natural resources including their responsibilities and services. Issues in natural resources programs are discussed.

In Nebraska's system of state and local government, primary responsibility for protecting and preserving natural resources is assigned to the Nebraska Natural Resources Commission (NRC), the Nebraska Department of Water Resources (DWR) and 23 Natural Resources Districts (NRDs). Both NRC and DWR are state agencies, while NRDs are political subdivisions (local units of government). The activities of each have expanded over time as the public's interest in protecting natural resources has grown more intense.
