The Gateway for Community Assistance provides Missouri communities with customized online access to tools and resources that can help address their environmental compliance and infrastructure planning needs.  The gateway includes a comprehensive catalog of tools, resources and services available for wastewater, drinking water, stormwater, solid waste, air quality, parks and recreation and more.  The Missouri Department of Natural Resources designed the system to enable local governments to make informed decisions, save staff time and money, and provide improved service to their citizens.
