NEW MISSOURI STATE LAW
EFFECTIVE AUG. 28, 2004
It is illegal to take glass-bottled beverages in a canoe, kayak, float tube, or any other easily tipped vessel on Missouri streams. Missouri Statute 306.325, enacted by the Missouri legislature earlier this year, also requires floaters to use coolers (or other similar containers) that are sealed to keep the contents from spilling. The same law requires floaters to bring a bag or other trash container and take all their trash to a proper disposal receptacle when they leave the stream. Failure to do so is a Class C misdemeanor.
