Welcome to the East Locust Creek Reservoir Project Website
The North Central Missouri Regional Water Commission (NCMRWC or the Commission) is a Joint Municipal Utility Commission formed in 2001 to allow its water supplier members to provide quality drinking water more efficiently and reliably in the face of ever more stringent drinking water regulations. The water suppliers that joined to form the Commission are The City of Green City, The City of Milan, Public Water Supply District #1 of Sullivan County and the City of Green Castle. The NCMRWC is the local sponsor of the East Locust Creek Reservoir (ELCR) project and this website has been created to provide information specific to the ELCR project.
The project is funded by the citizens of Sullivan County, the current NCMRWC customers, The United States Department of Agriculture – Natural Resources Conservation Service and the State of Missouri.
The mission of the East Locust Creek Reservoir local project sponsor, North Central Missouri Regional Water Commission (NCMRWC), is to provide an abundant source of low-cost, pure, quality water for the residents of North Central Missouri.
“The mission and purpose of the East Locust Creek Reservoir is to, first and foremost, provide for the high quality and affordable potable water needs of the customers of the North Central Missouri Regional Water Commission (the Commission). The Reservoir will also be managed to provide storm-water, flood mitigation and recreational benefits to the public. Within its means to do so, the Commission will respond to the higher callings of environmental stewardship and conservation in its oversight of the development, management and operations of the Reservoir. The Reservoir will be managed to promote public use and economic activity at and around the Reservoir.”
