Ozarks Water Watch

We promote water quality in the upper White River basin watershed thorough bi-state collaboration on research, public policy and action projects in Arkansas and Missouri.

Ozarks Water Watch is a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting the upper White River watershed from excessive pollution for the benefit of everyone today and in the future. The upper White River watershed includes 4 major impoundments, three major rivers and numerous smaller lakes and streams crisscrossing over 14,000 square miles in 19 counties in southwest Missouri and northwest Arkansas. As of 2015, OWW was joined by the staff and support of Table Rock Lake Water Quality Inc. which has allowed us to work more effectively and collaboratively within our local communities to promote water quality conservation and projects. With your help, we will work together to make Beaver, Table Rock, Taneycomo and Bull Shoals Lakes the four cleanest man-made lakes in North America!
