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 162 individuals representing 54 different organizations or groups that have participated in meetings or other activities.
The committee is planning to release the draft Missouri Nutrient Reduction Strategy for public review and comments by Sept. 30, 2014. The tentative date for completing the strategy is Dec. 31, 2014.
