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 maintaining and improving the water quality of the upper White River watershed. The 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. 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!


Careers

Ozarks Water Watch is seeking a Program Manager, to manage a new grant and loan program to assist homeowners in repairing and replacing failing septic systems in Northwest Arkansas. The successful applicant will help us fulfill our mission to protect and improve water quality in the Upper White River Basin.


Past Projects

Positive change has been accomplished through many of our projects, partnerships and volunteer activities which have largely focused on water quality monitoring, improving wastewater treatment systems, removing litter from our lakes and streams, and providing information and education to our communities.
