Flood Resources

Our hearts go out to all those up and down the Missouri River valley living through the catastrophic flood of 2019, who are experiencing devastation to their families, homes, farmlands, properties, businesses and other enterprises.  Some are also dealing with severe storm and tornado damage. 

Times of extreme weather and flooding like this highlight the need for increased knowledge and understanding of our river systems by those that live along this important river valley. 

We are often posting updates and articles on our facebook page. Here are some additional river resources you can use to stay on top of the situation.  Click here for the full list!

Reporting Hazardous Waste

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources has created a new online form for reporting flood-related orphaned potentially hazardous containers for clean-up.

You can still always use the Environmental Emergency Response (EER) Spill Line (573-634-2436), but this form will work too. Please get as much detail as you can about the location of the items. It can help to take a geolocated photo as well and find out how to submit that.
