Reservoir Named for Senator Blunt to Serve North-Central Missouri

(MISSOURINET) –  The dedication of the Roy Blunt Reservoir in Sullivan County took place within sight of the future dam construction, the result of four decades of work by area leaders to bring a sustainable supply of drinking water and recreation to the area.

On the Senate Appropriations Committee, Blunt secured resources for the project in every government funding bill since 2016, for a total of nearly $80 million.

The senator on site Thursday told a MissouriNet Affiliate that he was honored by the naming:

The Roy Blunt Reservoir service area includes Mercer, Putnam, Schuyler, Grundy, Sullivan, Adair, Livingston, Linn, Macon, and Chariton counties.
