Earlier this month, residents in the community of Wood Heights voted for Missouri American Water to become their trusted provider of water and wastewater service.
“We look forward to welcoming residents of Wood Heights into the Missouri AmericanWater family, joining the approximately 1.5 million Missourians that receive clean, safe, reliable and affordable water or wastewater service provided by our dedicated team,” said Rich Svindland, president of Missouri American Water. More than 83% of voters in Wood Heights supported the Proposition S ballot measure.
“Missouri American Water are the experts when it comes to water and wastewater and will make improvements to the systems that are needed to meet rapidly approaching regulations,” said Frank Davitt, Mayor of Wood Heights. “They have the resources to make these critical investments significantly less than we could on our own.” Wood Heights is in Ray County, Missouri, about 30 miles northeast of Kansas City.
“It is very rewarding to work with communities facing water and wastewater challenges, and we are honored the residents of Wood Heights have chosen us to be their service provider,” said Jody Carlson, director of operations for Northwest Missouri. “We are proud to be able to invest in Wood Heights and provide an exceptional value for our current and future customers.”
If approved by the Missouri Public Service Commission, approximately 268 water customers and 194 wastewater customers would be added to Missouri American Water’s footprint.
