Lake of the Ozarks

Lake of the Ozarks is located in the Ozark Highlands, though a portion of the watershed originates in the Osage Plains Region. The Harry S. Truman Reservoir precedes this large impoundment on the Osage River. Even though the majority of the watershed is forest and grassland, the proximity of urban areas to the lake may influence water quality. Truman Reservoir also influences water quality. Past research has shown, when large volumes of water are being released from Truman scouring occurs in the old river channel. At these times, large amounts of inorganic suspended solids along with high concentrations of nutrients are brought into Lake of the Ozarks (Jones and Kaiser 1988).
