Money Flows in Missouri Water Supply Systems
MID-MISSOURI - Drinking water systems are going under the microscope thanks to new funding. The DNR has given more than $1.46 million for studies on water supply systems across the state.
The money allows areas to hire engineers to study the systems and make recommendations on how to achieve or maintain water regulations.
Nine water systems in the northeast region are receiving more than $200,000 including:
- Moberly: $60,750
- Boonville: $45,000
- Macon County Public Water Supply District Number 1: $25,020
- Cole County Public Water Supply Districts 3 and 4: Combined $67,500
The DNR says it is important to make investments in infastructures to provide safe and reliable drinking water. The funding comes from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
