In order to accomplish our mission, we must secure, maintain, and protect a safe drinking water resource, and provide, operate, and maintain treatment processing plants for
water and wastewater purification. We must also provide and maintain an infrastructure of drinking water storage and a distribution system, and sewage collection systems for delivering these
water and wastewater services to each and every home, business, and organization in our community. These utility services are funded through user fees only, and therefore we must maintain a
trustworthy financial structure with security, and accountability to the general public, our government, and our customers. The water and sewer industries are highly regulated by the
State of Missouri, and the U.S. E.P.A. Also, because these are public funds, there are strict financial regulations that must be complied with.
It is our responsibility to maintain 100% compliance with all regulations. To achieve this, we must retain a network of professionals in many fields to guide our community through the
regulatory environment as we strive to deliver these uninterrupted water and sewer services affordably to our citizens. Last, but not least, we must strive to manage restore and maintain our
community’s utility infrastructures in top physical condition, preserving our citizen’s largest investment, growing and evolving with changing regulatory and social demands, always offering a
smooth transition as future volunteers are chosen to serve on the Board of Public Works and carry on with this charge.
