The Southern Sarpy Watersheds Partnership was formed in 2016 through an interlocal agreement between the Cities of Bellevue, Gretna, Papillion, Springfield, Sarpy County, and the Papio-Missouri River Natural Resources District.

The purpose of the Partnership is to make sure that a watershed management plan is in place before the area is developed. In 2017, Houston Engineering (formerly FYRA Engineering) was selected to assist the Partnership in development of a watershed plan.
