Ameren Missouri to Sponsor Water Quality Workshop at Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks
Will Focus on Managing Storm Water Runoff

Homeowners, builders, landscape contractors, realtors and interested members of the general public at Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks are invited to attend a two-hour workshop, Nov. 16, on how to protect the lake’s water quality by managing storm water runoff. The workshop will focus on the installation of individual rain gardens to improve the quality of storm water runoff before it reaches the lake.

Ameren Missouri is sponsoring the event with the Lake of the Ozarks Watershed Alliance. It will take place from 5:45 to 8:00 p.m. in Room 60/61 at Tan-Tar-A Resort, State Road KK, Osage Beach, Mo.

Topics discussed will include what storm water runoff is, how runoff affects water quality, and practical “how to do it” information on installing individual rain gardens to help improve the quality of storm water runoff.

To ensure adequate space, pre-registration is recommended. To pre-register, contact Bryan Vance, Ameren Missouri shoreline management field coordinator, at 573-365-9252.

Ameren Missouri conducts a range of shoreline management activities at the Lake of the Ozarks under provisions of its federal license for the operation of Bagnell Dam and Osage Plant, which created the lake in 1931. Details can be found by going to “Lake of the Ozarks” at AmerenMissouri.com.
