- Lower Grand Watershed Initiative (Our Missouri
The Green Hills Regional Planning Commission is partnering
with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources to form a Watershed Advisory
Committee for the Lower Grand Watershed. The majority of the area of the watershed
includes Putnam, Sullivan, Linn, Chariton, and Carroll counties (Click
here for a map of the Lower Grand Watershed).
This initiative is
not about regulation. The focus is on sharing information and building relationships
and understandings necessary to maintain a healthy watershed for future generations
of Missourians. The goal is to engage local residents in the identification of
priorities and ideas for solutions to issues within this watershed resulting in
a plan that will help guide local leadership and future planning for water quality
and quantity in this area.
For more information on the Statewide "Our
Missouri Waters" watershed initiative please visit the MoDNR website here.

watershed plan for the Lower Grand Watershed was held at the MU Research Farm
in Linneus MO. This meeting was intended to be informative and to begin to establish
the foundations and relationships on which a useful watershed plan will be based.
