North Central Missouri communities located in Adair, Chariton, Grundy, Linn, Livingston, Macon, Mercer, Putnam, Schuyler, and Sullivan Counties, have documented evidence of the unreliable and inadequate water supply options currently available to this drought-prone region.

Set to be built north of Milan, Missouri, in rural Sullivan County, the East Locust Creek Reservoir Project is THE answer for the 10-county region’s water chronic threat of water shortage for 54,000 residents. We invite you to explore the lake, the region, need, design, and timeline.
