Nebraska has no shortage of shoreline thanks to its 79,000 miles of rivers — the most in the United States — and thousands more miles of lakefronts, streams, and other tributaries. That makes for some gorgeous views, and some headaches if you’re a property owner or work in construction. After all, where there’s water, there’s […]
