Membership in the Republican River Basin Coalition dropped from three natural resources districts (NRDs) to two Friday.

During an emergency phone meeting Friday, representatives of the Upper and Middle Republican NRDs voted to allow the Lower Republican NRD to withdraw from the coalition. 

Members of the LRNRD took action at a meeting last week to request withdrawal from the coalition formed in 2007 to deal jointly with compact compliance issues with Kansas.
