COLUMBIA - Governor Nixon announced a $713,266 grant Thursday that will go toward reducing stormwater runoff at Hinkson Creek in Boone County. The county public works will use the grant for the Hinkson Creek Urban Retrofit program, which will treat and study stormwater runoff in a residential subdivision.

Georganne Bowman, Boone County Stormwater Coordinator, said the Sunrise Estates community east of Columbia is the likely subject of that funding.
