“Dick Mercer has a long history of involvement with water and agriculture issues in Nebraska,” Heineman said.  “Dick has been an outstanding and respected leader on water issues. He has built an exceptional legacy as someone who cares and advocates for soil and water conservation.”

Heineman appointed Mercer to the Natural Resources Commission to represent the statewide interests of groundwater users in 2008. Before that, he was elected to the commission in 1992 to represent the Middle Platte Basin.

Mercer, now retired, has been a Buffalo County farmer and cattle feeder since 1949.  He has served on a long list of boards including the Central Platte Natural Resources District for 40 years, the Nebraska Environmental Trust for 10 years, and the Groundwater Foundation for 10 years.  He has also served on the state Water Policy Task Force and Water Funding Task Force.

“No one is more trusted and more respected on water issues than Dick Mercer,” said Heineman.  “I appreciate our friendship and his many years of service.”
