Missouri American Water to invest $8.4 million in water system upgrades with Ironton acquisiton

(UI) – Missouri American Water completed its acquisition of the Ironton water and wastewater systems for a combined purchase price of $3.7 million. Ironton is located about 80 miles south of St. Louis in Iron County. The community is part of Arcadia Valley in the St. Francois Mountains of the Ozark Plateau.

In November 2022, Ironton residents overwhelmingly voted in favor of Proposition S, selecting Missouri American Water as their water and wastewater service provider.

“We have extensive experience and expertise in the water and wastewater industry, and we have the size and scale, supported by our parent company American Water, to make system upgrades and provide solutions for our customers in communities big and small,” said Brian Eisenloeffel, senior director of operations for Missouri American Water.

The company has committed to investing $8.4 million over the next 10 years to upgrade Ironton’s water and wastewater systems to achieve regulatory compliance and improve reliability and water quality.

The acquisition adds approximately 700 water customers and 700 wastewater customers to Missouri American Water’s footprint.

American Water is the largest regulated water and wastewater utility company in the United States.

Missouri American Water, a subsidiary of American Water, is the largest investor-owned water utility in the state, providing high-quality and reliable water and wastewater services to approximately 1.6 million people.
