Water System: $16.2 million
Of the estimated $16.2 million in water system improvements, the largest investment ($10.6m) would be to supply the city with better quality water from Missouri American Water’s St. Louis County system. This would include building a transmission main to connect Eureka to our St. Louis County system, and making improvements to existing pipelines related to the change in water supply. Other projects include implementing a valve and hydrant maintenance program, tank inspection and cleaning, security measures, leak detection, and a cross-connection control program.
Sewer System: $21 million
Of the estimated $21 million in sewer system improvements, the largest investment ($18m) would be for lagoon treatment to maintain regulatory compliance with future ammonia limits. Other projects include sewer collection system lining and lift station improvements, manhole inspection, and sludge removal.
