Watershed Management Planning Grant

Project Completed November 2009

7. LittleSacMapThe Upper Little Sac Watershed Management Plan was initiated to address water quality issues in the watershed, help secure future 319 Grant funding, and to maintain the mission of Watershed Committee of the Ozarks; to improve and protect Springfield and Greene County water supply.
This watershed management plan is focused on the Little Sac River watershed. A watershed management plan is a living document, a vision for protecting and restoring the watershed and a plan for carrying it out. The process of watershed planning can have benefits beyond the road map that is created-it can help build a sense of community by bringing people together with different backgrounds and perspectives to define the future of their area, by helping identify the community’s cultural, historical and natural resources, and by educating the public about their watershed and the issues it faces. The Greene County Soil and Water Conservation District helped in gathering information, writing the document, contacting stakeholders, and the planning preparation for public meetings. Funding was provided through the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
