Missouri American Water to invest over $500 million in its water and wastewater systems.

Missouri American Water plans to invest over $500 million in its water and wastewater systems across the state in 2024 to enhance system reliability and resiliency.

This investment will involve the replacement of aging infrastructure such as pipes, pumps, and storage tanks, as well as the upgrading of treatment plants.

“Missouri American Water is investing to maintain and enhance safe and reliable service as many essential components of our water and wastewater systems are reaching the end of their useful life,” said Rich Svindland, president of Missouri American Water. “Proactive investments are more efficient and cost-effective for our customers, and we carefully plan these projects to meet the needs of the communities we serve as well as state and federal regulations.”

This year, Missouri American Water will replace more than 90 miles of pipe statewide, which not only enhances system reliability but also improves community fire protection in areas where water pipes are upsized.

In addition to the pipe replacement initiative, various other projects are underway throughout the state, including:

– Upgrading intake pumps and chemical feed systems at the south water treatment plant in St. Louis County
– Constructing a new filter building at the water treatment plant in Jefferson City
– Enhancing the Faraon and Randolph booster stations in St. Joseph
– Building a new carbon feed system and replacing the chlorine feed system at the treatment plant in Joplin
– Replacing the ozone system at the water treatment plant in Warrensburg
– Constructing new wastewater lift stations in Eureka, Maplewood (near Sedalia), and Smithton
