Important message from Missouri American Water: We are conducting our annual hydrant maintenance and hydrant flushing program in our service area starting April 19th for five weeks to help ensure continued water quality and fire protection. Customers may experience slight drop in water pressure or draw some discolored water for a short period of time. This is normal and should be temporary. If discolored water occurs, let your cold water run briefly and it should clear up on its own. If discolored water occurs please refrain from doing laundry during that time. We will also be switching from the current water treatment method of chloramines to free chlorine during this period which may result in a temporary chlorine taste and odor in the tap water. This is not a cause for concern. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
