MoDNR's Soil and Water Conservation Program

Section 319(h)(11) requires states to report annually on progress in meeting the schedule of milestones contained in their nonpoint source management plans. To the extent information is available, states also report reductions in nonpoint source pollutant loadings and improvements in water quality resulting from program implementation. The Missouri Department of Natural Resources prepares and submits Missouri's Nonpoint Source Management Plan Annual Progress Reports to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other stakeholders.

Each of Missouri's Nonpoint Source Management Plan Annual Progress Reports highlights the progress, achievements and successes made for each goal during that federal fiscal year. Annual successes are obtained through partnerships, landowners, communities, industries and local leaders that worked together to share information, set priorities for a watershed and seek financial resources for implementing voluntary land management practices to protect high quality resources or address water quality impairments or concerns. A narrative summary of that federal fiscal year's accomplishments are provided, including a recap of the consolidated goals and objectives provided in Missouri's plan and the status of each goal (e.g. in progress, behind schedule, completed, or terminated. Project summaries, grant annual performance report and activities completed by projects funded during that federal fiscal year are also provided. Also included is a summary of activities completed under the Performance Partnership Grant.

Listed below are the three most recent annual reports. For copies of older reports, please submit an Open Records/ Sunshine Law Request.

Missouri’s current Nonpoint Source Management Plan states that measures of success will be measured by outputs, such as the number of watershed planning documents developed, actions identified and prioritized and actions implemented. As more actions are implemented over time, the focus of performance measures will shift to outcomes, such as reductions in nonpoint source pollutant loads and delisting of waterbodies impaired by nonpoint source pollutant. The ultimate goal is to report nonpoint source success stories where water quality improvements have been documented.
