|Meramec River Tributary Alliance|
The Meramec River Tributary Alliance (MRTA) is a collaboration that came together in 2006 to work towards creating a common vision for the Meramec River Basin. The MRTA collaboratively organized and hosted the Meramec River Basin Summit in September 2007.
Meramec River Basin Summit:
The Meramec River Basin Summit brought together individuals and organizations, both public and private, which have played a role in the past and continue to contribute to the restoration, conservation, water quality protection, and outdoor recreation benefits found throughout the basin. By highlighting the renaissance of the Meramec River and its future value to the region and the state of Missouri, the summit offered a greater appreciation for the Meramec River and its tributaries as valued agricultural, conservation and outdoor recreation resources. The collaborative communication, dialogue and education that grew and continues to grow out of the summit may further inspire the public to embrace this river and have a greater appreciation for the many cultural and natural benefits found in the basin. The Source Water Protection Project is an example of the initiatives resulting from the efforts and collaborations.
