The Water Protection Forum is a workgroup designed to provide interested citizens, stakeholders, business and industry (both public and private), environmental groups, advocacy organizations and others with the opportunity to engage in discussion related to clean water topics. Forum meetings are held once every three months in Jefferson City. Department staff present on topics of interest to the group. Stakeholders or other members of the public may also provide presentations related to clean water or related topics. The department welcomes suggestions for discussion, which can be sent by email to the Water Protection Forum at waterprotectionforum@dnr.mo.gov. We look forward to meeting you at a future forum meetings.
