Watershed Center of the Ozarks

Now complete, the Watershed Center at Valley Water Mill is a result of many years of planning, and one of only a handful of watershed education facilities in the United States. 

The main facility is approximately 3,500 sq. ft. in area, and includes a public meeting room, staff office spaces and public toilets for Valley Water Mill Park. The building is designed to meet sustainable, U.S. Green Building Council standards for the LEED® Gold level. Building components designed to meet this certification are: 

  • rainwater harvesting
  • innovative stormwater management
  • low-maintenance, native plant materials requiring little to no irrigation
  • daylighting
  • sustainable building materials
  • efficient water fixtures
  • energy efficient heating and cooling systems
  • energy efficient lighting

The surrounding site is operated as part of the Springfield-Greene County Parks systems and includes a series of trails and learning stations that highlight specific water resource features including wetlands, lakes, streams and springs.
