Envisioning clean water for you,
your children, and your grandchildren.
The James River Basin Partnership (JRBP) is a grassroots, not-for-profit, 501(c)3 organization working to improve and protect the water quality of the springs, streams, rivers, and lakes in the James River watershed which
consists of almost a million acres of land in portions of eight counties.
Mark Twain once said, "The river has a new story to tell every day." While it's no Life on the Mississippi, our new JRBP staff blog is our own meandering look at people, topics and events around the watershed and beyond - a blog devoted to waters, just as we all are.
The James River Basin Partnership is working with local restaurants to reduce and eliminate single-use plastics in our community. Single-use plastics are rapidly emerging as a very real, and very visible, source of pollution for not only our local waterways, but rivers, and oceans beyond Southwest Missouri.

Use our septic pump-out rebate program to get a "Fresh Flush" to keep your expenses and maintenance on track.
