About us

The Ozarks Environmental and Water Resources Institute (OEWRI) is in the College of Natural and Applied Sciences at Missouri State University. The institute supports efforts to protect and restore water quality and supply in the Ozarks Region of southern Missouri and northern Arkansas. It provides a hub for science-based monitoring and assessment of water and sediment quality trends, watershed function and disturbance, and land use/land cover change in the Ozarks. In addition, it implements research projects aimed at solving environmental problems by working in partnership and cooperation with university researchers, environmental groups, and governmental agencies.
