Hinkson Creek Sampling Report to be Presented by Missouri Department of Natural Resources Environmental Specialist

September 10, 2014

At 4:00PM on Wednesday, September 17, 2014, findings from sampling of the Hinkson Creek will be presented by Dave Michaelson, Environmental Specialist from Missouri Department of Natural Resources, to the Hinkson Creek Collaborative Adaptive Management (CAM) Stakeholder Committee. The presentation will take place in the Roger B. Wilson Boone County Government Center Commission Chambers. Michaelson's report explains the methods and findings of invertebrate species and other water quality sampling conducted in the spring of 2013.

The CAM process is the result of an innovative, cooperative partnership between federal, state, county, city and University of Missouri officials focused on using adaptive methods to implement a pollutant reduction plan to improve Hinkson Creek's water quality. The Hinkson CAM process has been underway for approximately two years. A progress report summarizing the accomplishments of the CAM process from 2012 and 2013 is available at
