East Locust Creek Reservoir Will Also Provide Recreation

Drinking water will be the main benefit of the East Locust Creek Reservoir in Sullivan County. Last week, Governor Mike Parson was in Milan to sign a resolution that expresses support for up to $24 million in state funds for the 2,300 acre lake. Sullivan County Presiding Commissioner Chris May said the lake will also provide recreation.

May estimated a timeline for completion of the project.

May said the lake will be five miles northeast of Milan and will supply water to a 10-county region. The state resolution supports funding of the North Central Missouri Regional Water Commission project.
