Missouri Association of Councils of Government: Missouri Watershed Planning and Wastewater Study

Posted on: October 4th, 2012 by Kate Humphrey

NADO’s 2012 Innovation Awards recognized 64 projects from 22 states for their creative approaches to regional community and economic development, including the project described below. Click here for the full list of winners.

The Missouri Association of Councils of Government led the development of the Missouri Watershed Planning and Wastewater Study for communities of less than 5,000 across the state. Regional planning commissions surveyed communities in their respective jurisdictions and entered data into a web application for aggregation and analysis. The project assesses the existing conditions of municipal wastewater systems and provides an environmentally and economically sound plan for wastewater treatment and disposal over the next 20 years. The final community reports are designed to provide a “snapshot” of the existing system, a comparison of the system to others in the region and the state, and a forecast of future system capacity needs, options, and costs, with special consideration for facilities that discharge into sensitive watersheds.
