There are two incorporated watershed districts within the Marmaton Watershed: Mill Creek Watershed District No. 98 and Marmaton Joint Watershed District No. 102.  The Mill Creek Watershed District was incorporated in 1975, while the Marmaton Joint Watershed District was incorporated in 1984.  The map below shows the Marmaton WRAPS Watershed boundary with the Marmaton and Mill Creek Watershed District boundaries.

The Marmaton Joint Watershed District represents 208,000 acres of the WRAPS Marmaton Watershed, while the Mill Creek Watershed District represents 39,110 acres.  Bone Creek, in the southern portion of the watershed, represents 8,000 acres of the WRAPS Marmaton Watershed.  Therefore, there are approximately 100,000 acres of the Marmaton Watershed that have no formalized seat of authority that WRAPS will represent, with the Marmaton Joint Watershed District having the legal functionality for WRAPS (since the Marmaton Joint Watershed District is the grant awardee).
The Marmaton Watershed encompasses parts of three counties: Bourbon, Allen, and Crawford.  The total population in the watershed is approximately 21,660 people.  The number of people in each county in the watershed is shown below.

15,066 in Bourbon County
