Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD) is lowering water levels in its canals from the Keystone diversion at Lake Ogallala to Lake Maloney. This is part of a planned inspection and maintenance project that is required by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), which licenses and inspects projects such as the canals, Sutherland Reservoir and Lake Maloney.

This kind of inspection is scheduled every five years, but was delayed from 2011 to 2012 due to high water levels in the rivers last year. The water level must be lowered so that NPPD personnel and FERC inspectors can view specific areas that normally cannot be seen when the canals and reservoirs are at normal levels.
