A new water quality standard is putting Lake of the Ozarks on the EPA’s list of impaired waterways.
Speaking with KB on the Morning Magazine, Jeff Robichaud with the EPA says Missouri adopted the nutrient criteria in 2018.
He also says the lake’s water condition shouldn’t affect tourism in 2021.
Robichaud says he thinks the fix for Lake of the Ozarks water quality will come at the local level.
The Truman reservoir west of the Lake Area is also on Missouri’s list of impaired waterways.
