Thanks to all that helped in the passage of our Bond Issue on the April 5, 2011 ballot.  The Board of Directors and staff of the District appreciate your vote of confidence. 

We will begin making improvements just as soon as the paperwork and engineering can be completed.

Some projects that we intend to start include:

  • Install an automatic stand-by generator at Well #3.
  • Install a new water main to connect Jefferson High School and Stonebridge Estates to a back-up water system in the event of a failure in the main system.
  • Install larger water main and fire hydrants starting at our office and going north along Hwy. TT and Hwy. 61 to the Plattin Road area.
  • Update our computerized control system. 



UPDATE:  May, 2011 - An application has been submitted to the Missouri Department of Natural Resources - Drinking Water State Revolving Fund for a low-interest loan to fund our projects. 

UPDATE:  Sept., 2011 - Our project has been placed on MO-DNR's State Revolving Fund Loan Fundable Project List.  This means our project does qualify for a low-interest loan.

UPDATE:  Dec., 2011 - We were notified by MO-DNR that our project would receive a grant for 50% of the project's cost.  This means we will only incur debt for half of the bid amount saving the district approx. $1,000,000 in long-term debt.

UPDATE:  Feb., 2012 - Our engineers have completed surveying and are in the final design phase of our project.  We anticipate having the project out for bid by summer.

UPDATE:  April, 2012 - Plans have been submitted to the Missouri Department of Natural Resources for approval.

UPDATE:  August, 2012 - Plans have been approved by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.  Final details for the project are being addressed before the bid process begins.
