Missouri Nutrient Reduction Strategy

Upcoming Meetings | Minutes | More Information

Vision: “Missouri citizens working together to ensure all Missouri waters have acceptable levels of nutrients that maintain water quality for designated uses.”


The primary goal of the Missouri Nutrient Reduction Strategy Committee (committee) is to develop a comprehensive, integrated state level nutrient reduction strategy that is science-based, effective, achievable and economically sustainable. 

The committee is chaired by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. To date, there have been 139 individuals representing 47 different organizations or groups that have participated in meetings or other activities. 

The committee is scheduled to complete the Missouri Nutrient Reduction Strategy by June 30, 2014.  Implementation of the strategy will be tested in up to four small pilot watersheds beginning in the last quarter of calendar year 2014.
