Greenway Network, Inc, in partnership with the Confluence Partnership, East West Gateway Council of Governments, Metropolitan Sewer District and the Spanish Lake Community Association created a watershed management plan for Watkins Creek.  The project was funded by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and spearheaded by Greenway Network’s Project Director Ralph Rollins. Over a two year period, the team developed a clear description of Watkins Creek as it exists today.  They then worked to identify problems associated with the creek and to map out plans for improvement.  Community building and public education were critical elements of the project.  At this time, there is consensus on a path forward for the watershed.  Implementation of the plan awaits further funding.
