The Missouri Department of Natural Resources, Water Resource Center and Missouri’s Safe Drinking Water Program has the responsibility of assisting state residences in assuring an adequate and safe water supply. The purpose of the water supply study is to ensure availability of water information for effective decision-making by communities and DNR program managers. In addition, this study is expected to be used to determine and allocate existing water supplies. The scope of this study primarily addresses surface water supplies for cities and communities that are expected to experience water shortages during an extended drought. Surface water supplies consist of lakes, rivers and streams and in many cases combinations of both.
