The Watershed Committee monitors water quality parameters, nutrients, and bacteria for 18 sites in the Little Sac River Watershed, a primary source for drinking water in Springfield and Greene County.

The parameters collected include temperature, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, pH, phosphorus, nitrate, total coliform and E Coli. The samples are collected and analyzed monthly then the data is utilized to observe water trends in the Ozarks and aid in the preservation and improvement of water supplies in Springfield and Greene County. For a map of our water quality monitoring sites, click HERE
