From the Sterling Journal-Advoacate (Judy Debus):
The LCWCD was established in 2002 by District Court decree to address the issue and develop projects to reduce the potential for damaging floods. It has since focused its efforts on the Pawnee Creek, which represents one of the greatest threats for future flooding damage. It is funded by mill levy and other board members in addition to Bournia are Shane Miller and Richard Walker, board president. Board members are appointed by the court for a three-year term. This year, the .83 mil levy will provide revenue of $212,732 paid by county landowners, according to the county finance department. The board is not connected with Logan County government.
The Pawnee Creek has seen major floods occur about every 30 years and the 1997 flood caused approximately $20 million in damage to roads, railroads and agricultural property, not to mention in the towns of Sterling and Atwood.
