ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Missouri American Water announced the company’s acquisition of the Jaxson Estates water system located near Wentzville, Mo. The system was previously owned by Ciana Realty.
“We welcome these 75 new customers to our Missouri American Water customer family and look forward to providing them with top quality service,” said Cheryl Norton, President of Missouri American Water.
The acquisition of the Jaxson Estates system was approved by the Missouri Public Service Commission (MoPSC) on December 16 and closed today.
