The Missouri Department of Natural Resources’ Water Resources Center will offer water reporting assistance to major water users at the University of Missouri’s Fisher Delta Research Center in Portageville on Thursday, Jan. 16. Staff will be in attendance from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. to assist with online and paper registration, registering as a new major water user, determining withdrawal locations and to answer questions about water use laws.
