Lake McConaughy Restrictions Delayed After Public Outcry

(KFOR NEWS  January 20, 2020)  (AP) – The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is delaying action on a set of restrictions that would drastically limit overnight campers and beachgoers at Nebraska’s largest reservoir, Lake McConaughy in western Nebraska.

Commission Director, Jim Douglas, says additional time is needed to consider the suggestions offered by hundreds of people who showed up for a hearing on the proposed rules.  Most people at Thursday’s meeting said they wanted more law enforcement and greater attention to checkpoints, not limits on access to the lake.

The proposed restrictions were developed following complaints about overcrowding and rowdy behavior last Fourth of July.
