The Missouri Department of Natural Resources is seeking public input on Missourians’ recreational use of more than 380 Missouri waterways. As part of a periodic review of state water quality standards required by the federal Clean Water Act, the Department of Natural Resources is considering revisions to the recreational use designations assigned to a number of Missouristreams and rivers. The department recognizes that Missouri citizens know best how their local rivers and streams are used and wants those who are familiar with these water bodies to provide their input. In particular, the department is looking for information on whether or not these streams are used by the public for swimming, fishing, wading, tubing or any other type of recreation. This information is critical for helping to maintain appropriate water quality where these uses exist. Each of the water bodies under review fell under a default designation in 2005 as being suitable for “whole body contact recreation,” meaning that people used or could use the river or stream for activities such as swimming, water skiing or skin diving. The department’s review of water quality standards will consider public input along with the results of stream surveys, conducted in 2007 and 2008 at the request of the Missouri Clean Water Commission, to determine whether these streams’ use designations should be adjusted to more accurately represent how they are being used or can be used. In Dent County, the Spring Creek Branch has been listed as whole body contact recreation and secondary contact recreation, while Dry Fork Creek was listed as only a whole body contact recreation, but there is a recommendation it be included with the secondary status as well. The department is committed to protecting the public who use our streams for recreation, while at the same time being careful not to cause small communities or ratepayers to pay higher fees to protect uses that do not exist or are not attainable. Citizens may submit comments by mail to: UAA Coordinator, Missouri Department of Natural Resources, Water Protection Program, P.O. Box 176, Jefferson City, MO 65102-0176. All comments received during the Recreational UAA public comment period, and any revised department recommendations, will be posted on the department’s UAA website. The public comment period for this process runs through Dec. 31.
The US Attorney’s Office has announced that two Phelps County women and one man have been indicted in methamphetamine conspiracy charges. These activities allegedly took place between May 20, 2008 through early May 2011 in Phelps County. Three people: 45-year old Douglas J. Rolufs, 53-year old Charlotte H. Gray, and 37-year old Victoria G. Litchford, all of Rolla, were each indicted on one felony count of conspiracy to manufacture in excess of 50 grams of methamphetamine and one felony count of possession of pseudoephedrine for the manufacture of methamphetamine. If convicted, the conspiracy count carries a penalty range of five to 40 years in prison and/or fines up to $2 million; possession of pseudoephedrine carries a maximum of 20 years in prison and/or fines up to $250,000. In determining the actual sentences, a Judge is required to consider the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, which provide recommended sentencing ranges. This case was investigated by the South Central Drug Task Force. Assistant United States Attorney Jeannette Graviss is handling the case for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
