Bonne Femme Watershed Project is over.
The Project ended August 31st, 2007. This website will stay active
for several years, but its content will stay essentially the same.
The Bonne Femme Watershed Plan is complete!
It is available in electronic format and hard copy. Both formats
of the plan are free and are distributed through Boone County Planning
and Building's office in room 210 of the Boone County Government
Center. For more info about the plan,
Use watershed planning
as a tool to prevent further water resources degradation in order
to maintain their long-term quality within the Bonne Femme Watershed.
1) Help Boone County, and the Cities of Ashland and Columbia, adopt
policies and procedures that will protect the streams in the watershed;
2) Assist developers and builders in adopting best management practices
(BMPs) that will help protect the streamsí integrity;
3) Provide cost-share assistance for land owners in the watersheds
to implement practices that will protect and restore the streams.
In June of 2003, Boone
County was awarded a 4-year grant from the Environmental Protection
Agency, through the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. A
multi-faceted approach is being taken to address various stream-related
issues in the Bonne Femme Watershed. For more info, click here
