Absorbing Water Rate Increase

Recently, the Public Service Commission approved a rate increase of 8.10% for Missouri American Water. The increase will raise the cost of water that Public Water Supply District #3 pays to supply water to our customers.

Our first priority is to manage the water resources  for our customers. We do so by providing the highest quality water at the lowest rate possible. There are many factors that are discussed when deciding whether or not to pass a rate increase on to our customers.

At this time, the Board of Directors for Public Water District #3 voted to have the District absorb the 8.10% rate increase and to not pass this cost nor to raise the rates to our customers. Please note that this may not always be the case and future increases may need to be passed to our customers.
