The Mark Twain Regional Council of Governments is partnering with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources to form a Watershed Advisory Committee for the North Fork Salt River Watershed. The watershed includes parts of six counties and serves as the source of water for the Clarence Cannon Wholesale Water Commission, which provides drinking water to over 74,000 people in northeast Missouri.
The goal is to engage local residents and stakeholders in the identification of priorities and ideas for solutions to issues within this watershed. Ultimately, creating a healthy watershed plan that will help guide local leadership and future planning for water quantity and quality in this area.
This effort is not about regulation, enacted or proposed. It is about sharing information with the goal of developing the understandings and relationships necessary for the creation of a Watershed Advisory Committee and Healthy Watershed Plan for the North Fork Salt River Watershed.
A watershed is an area of land defined by ridges, from which water flows into a particular water body. In this case, it is the Salt River. The North Fork Salt River Watershed includes portions of Monroe, Shelby, Macon, Knox, Adair and Schuyler Counties.
