The Upper White River Basin Foundation (UWRBF) implemented a water quality monitoring program in the Upper White River Basin in 2008 (www.whiteriverbasin.org). The goal of this program is to provide a long-term and consistent source of water quality and stream health information on the major rivers and tributaries draining into the upper portion of the White River including Beaver Lake, AR, Table Rock Lake, MO, and Bull Shoals Lake, MO/AR. It involves several partners including the United States Geological Survey (USGS), University of Arkansas-Fayetteville, Bull Shoals Field Station (BSFS) at Missouri State University-Springfield (MSU), and Ozarks Environmental and Water Resources Institute (OEWRI) at MSU.
