Water is a MUST, not a maybe.
Water is required for public health. It is the only public infrastructure resource that we ingest.
Drinking water is an incredible value.
We take this value for granted.
Water is an economic opportunity for the future.
Investments in future water will pay for themselves.
Water is Jobs
We rely on water for industry, manufacturing, energy production, schools, hospitals, and so much more. Adequate and affordable water supply supports local jobs and a vibrant economy.
Regional challenges, regional solutions.
Collaborative partnerships will yield mutually beneficial rewards for each unique community that relies on the Ozark Aquifer.
Drought must be prepared for
During drought, demand is high when supply is low. Running out is not an option.
To preserve groundwater as a long-term water supply source it must be used sustainably in combination with surface water sources.
