Please stay tuned for updates to this website as we move forward in the implementation process.
The Bonne Femme Watershed Plan is complete!
It is currently available in electronic format. For more information 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
