A Little History

The Land Improvement Contractors Association (LICA) was founded in Missouri in 1941 by a group of, primarily, terracing contractors in an attempt to promote the proper management of soil and water, with the ultimate goal being the preservation of precious topsoil. Other contractors soon began to take notice of those contractors’ success and formed their own LICA state chapters, resulting in the founding of the National LICA in 1951. Nebraska LICA held its first membership meeting in 1959. Although LICA’s underlying activity is still topsoil conservation, the organization has undergone many transformations over the years. Today, we represent construction companies from across the state which perform the following types of work:
Cable/Utility Installation Gravel/Rock Production Reclamation
Directional Boring Hardscaping Road Boring/Drainage
Drainage/Irrigation Land Leveling Septic Systems
Dredging Landscaping Sewer/Water/Underground Utilities
Earthmoving/Land Clearing Open Ditch Work Site Preparation/Development
