ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Missouri American Water customers are encouraged to visit the company website to learn more about the source and quality of their drinking water. The 2022 water quality reports, also referred to as Consumer Confidence Reports, are now available for all of Missouri American Water’s operations throughout the state.
The drinking water for the company’s customers in St. Louis County and St. Charles County comes from the Missouri River and Meramec River.
“Our team of highly skilled professionals are committed to delivering safe, clean, reliable water service to our customers, and we’re proud to meet or surpass state and federal health and safety regulations,” said Rich Svindland, President of Missouri American Water. “We continually invest to upgrade our treatment plant and distribution system to provide quality water and reliable service.”
All four of Missouri American Water’s area treatment plants (Central, North, South and Meramec plants) are nationally recognized with the Directors Award from the Partnership for Safe Water, a voluntary initiative developed by six prestigious drinking water organizations including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The award recognizes systems for consistently surpassing federal and state drinking water standards. These plants have been recognized with this distinction for 21 years.
The St. Louis operations team has also developed a Source Water Protection Plan to reduce the risk of potential contamination to both the Missouri and Meramec Rivers. The Plan, which identifies and prioritizes potential contaminant threats and discusses mitigate actions, has been submitted to the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
This year Missouri American Water is investing more than $425 million to upgrade its water and wastewater treatment plants and pipeline systems across the state to further enhance water quality and service reliability.
The 2022 Water Quality Reports are available here.
