Water Project - New Water Tank April 2021
The current water system construction is a $2 million project to replace the three (3) existing, 60 year old, concrete underground, deteriorated water reservoirs with a 200,000 gallon water tower. The project is being funded by USDA and CDBG and is 70% grant funded and 30% loan funded. To optimize water pressures and to replace old, leaking cast iron water mains, water line working along Kentucky Street and Mississippi Street is required. This project will help modernize the water system, allow better operational control by the water operator and provide reliability of water distribution and storage for the next 30-40 years. Maguire Iron (Sioux Falls, SD) is the water tower contractor. Busy Bee Construction (Lewistown, MO) is the water line contractor. Municipal Electric Company (St. Louis, MO) is the controls contractor. Klingner and Associates, PC (Hannibal, MO) is the engineer.
