Our Missouri Waters Initiative - Lower Grand River Watershed

newatershed photo


The Lower Grand River Watershed in north-central Missouri is in an area of the state with water quantity problems, where drought conditions can threaten the drinking water supply for many communities. This watershed contains areas of diverse wet prairie and bottomland forest that are remnants of the natural wetland habitat once common in northern Missouri. The watershed also contains streams impacted by channelization, sedimentation, and nonpoint source runoff. The department is building partnerships to identify opportunities to address water quantity and water quality problems in this watershed.
