Receiving Water Sources
The City of Moberly covers approximately 12 square miles. Several creeks and their tributaries flow through the area. There are four major receiving streams that receive the stormwater. These are Coon Creek and its tributaries, Sweet Springs Creek and its tributaries, Sugar Creek and its tributaries and the Elk Fork of the Salt River.
The stormwater generated in the southeastern part of the city, areas east of the Norfolk Southern Railroad and the area south of Sinnock Avenue, flow into the tributaries of Coon Creek. It then enters Coon Creek and is carried to the Elk Fork of the Salt River in Monroe County where it eventually enters Mark Twain Lake.
Stormwater from the northeastern part of the City limits flows into the Elk Fork of the Salt River. This includes areas east of the Norfolk Southern Railroad and the areas north of Sinnock Avenue.
The northwestern part of the City flows into Sugar Creek, Sugar Creek Lake and their tributaries. This is the area west of Highway 63 and the Norfolk Southern Railroad and north of route EE.
Stormwater from the southwestern side of Moberly, areas west of the Norfolk Southern Railroad and south of Route EE, flows into Sweet Springs Creek. Sweet Springs Creek enters the Middle Fork of the Chariton River southeast of Clifton Hill. The various branches of the Chariton River empty into the Missouri River.
