Clean water is a distinguishing feature of the Ozarks. Many agencies and organizations are working to keep it that way, including the Watershed Committee of the Ozarks. To help further this goal, a few years ago the Committee embarked on the development of the Watershed Center at Valley Water Mill. This 100-acre, publicly owned site contains a large spring, seventeen-acre lake, wetlands, sinkholes, caves and stream frontage. Here, project partners will construct a watershed education facility that will be a model for sustainable development.
