Local Government Assistance Survey

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources is working with natural resource agencies in several states, in consultation with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), to improve local government access to environmental compliance information and assistance.   They are asking that you take five minutes to answer a few questions about the kinds of assistance that may be helpful to you and your organization at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2MH7T9K.  Your feedback on this survey by February 7, 2015 will help plan new tools and services for communities, especially related to drinking water and waste water treatment systems.  After you take the survey, you may also be interested in visiting a new website designed by the EPA for local government leaders at http://www2.epa.gov/communities.
