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.

 

 
This is the southwest Missouri watershed map of the James River watershed. Note: "Basin" also means "watershed." A watershed is an entire river system. It is is an area of land where all the rain and tributaries drain to one common body of water - like a river. In our basin, it flows to the James River then into Table Rock Lake.
