Missouri American Water president Rich Svindland announced the company has completed its acquisition of the City of Purcell's water and wastewater systems. This will add approximately 160 water and 150 wastewater customers to the company's southwestern district. Missouri American Water has been operating both systems since February 2021 at the request of local officials.

'We welcome the residents of Purcell and are honored to provide safe, clean and reliable water and wastewater service to the community,' said Svindland. 'Customers will continue to benefit from the experience and expertise of our dedicated team of professionals, and we can now move forward with making the necessary improvements to maintain regulatory compliance.'

More than 90% of the voters in Purcell supported the ballot measure in August 2021, choosing Missouri American Water as their trusted water and wastewater provider.
