I would like to inform you all that an error was discovered in the March and April billing cycles. The error occurred in the calculation of sewer charges. We have corrected the error and will credit your

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the Department of Natural Resources prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. Department of Health regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health.
The Missouri Department of Natural Resources regulates our water systems and requires us to test our water on a regular basis to ensure its safety. Our systems have been assigned unique identification numbers for the purposes of tracking our test results.
Last year, we tested for a variety of contaminants. The detectable results of these tests are on the following pages of the reports. Any violations of state requirements or standards will be further explained later in those reports.
