Any surface or groundwater user with a water source and the equipment necessary to withdraw or divertgallons or more per day (70 gallons per minute) from any stream, river, lake, well, spring or other water source is considered a major water user in Missouri.

All major water users are required by law to register water use annually. Watersheds vary in size from the largest river basins to just a few acres or less. A group of watersheds that drain into a major water body often are referred to as a basin.

For example, all of the land that drains into the Missouri River, from Three Forks, Montana to St. Louis, Missouri, is called the Missouri River Basin. The Missouri and Mississippi rivers are managed by different offices and separate plans. Water users in the Missouri River basin want to keep supplies available for drinking, irrigation, agriculture, industrial purposes and power production, while industries along the Mississippi would benefit from greater flow from the Missouri to help ensure that the trade and transport vital to the region's.
