Elkhorn River Research Station (ERRS)
In 2011, the University of Nebraska at Omaha partnered with the Papio-Missouri River NRD to construct the Elkhorn River Research Station (ERRS). The ERRS was designed to provide a secure, controlled environment in which UNO students and faculty can perform river-based experiments.
Holding tanks are available at the ERRS to hold fish and other aquatic animals for experimentation. Water from the river can be continuously pumped through the ERRS, so that animals in the ERRS are exposed to river water in real-time.
