LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ Helicopters will fly back and forth across parts of eastern Nebraska this spring to map out groundwater levels.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports several natural resource districts hired the helicopter to get a better idea of how much groundwater is available.

The low-level flights will cross parts of Butler, Saunders, Seward, Sarpy, Douglas, Lancaster, Cass, Otoe, Johnson, Nemaha, Richardson, Pawnee and Gage counties.

The helicopter will carry electronic instruments on a steel frame suspended 100 feet below the craft.
