The Douglas County Land and Water Resource Management Plan was developed by the Land Conservation Department. The intent of the plan is to foster local water quality planning and increase public participation in natural resource management. Douglas County Environmental Health was a partner in one of the tasks outlined in the plan, the Groundwater Well Sampling Program. More than 150 private wells were sampled throughout Douglas County in 2018. Groundwater education and testing results were shared at two rural community town hall events.
