The Lower Platte North NRD is governed by a 19-member Board of Directors. Directors are elected at the general election to four-year terms, with half of the board members up for election every two years.
The district is divided into nine subdistricts. Two directors are elected from each subdistrict, and one director is elected at large. Each director serves on one or more of the district's four committees: Water, Projects, Education-Operations-Rural Water, and Executive.
The board meets on the second Monday of each month. Generally, meetings are held at the district's offices at 511 Commercial Park Road in Wahoo, although occasionally meetings are held at different sites around the district.
The Lower Platte North NRD employs 14 full-time personnel based at the district headquarters in Wahoo. The NRD also employs four clerks and one technician at Natural Resources Conservation Service offices in Butler, Colfax, Dodge, and Saunders counties. Part-time, seasonal employees are responsible for groundskeeping and maintenance at the Czechland, Homestead and Lake Wanahoo recreation areas, and part-time employees or interns are often hired in the summer to assist with tree planting, water sampling and other duties.
