Missouri is blessed with an abundance of water. Our way of life is intertwined with water. We depend on water for drinking, food production, recreation, healthy ecosystems and more. We swim, fish, play and celebrate in and around water. Water pollution can impact us all. You can take simple steps while at home, traveling on roads and trails, and while enjoying our waterways to protect our state’s water resources. You also can make your voice heard by attending public meetings and hearings, and commenting on public notices about protecting our water resources, flood mitigation, and in all areas related to water resources. We invite you to help us make a difference.
