Water Plant improvements

The City of Excelsior Springs is making additional improvements to our water treatment facilities to increase the safety of plant operations for employees and the public. Some form of chlorine is used to disinfect drinking water in 98% of water treatment systems in the United States. Chlorine gas is used in the majority of U.S. water treatment facilities, including Excelsior Springs. There are, however, increasing safety and security concerns with the transportation, storage and use of chlorine gas, which is toxic and corrosive.
The City is joining an increasing number of water treatment facilities in converting to the use of a nongaseous form of chlorine. On December 5, 2016, the City Council approved an agreement with Lamp, Rynearson & Associates Engineers to design a replacement for the chlorine gas system that will utilize sodium hypochlorite, a liquid chemical commonly used in household bleach. This project was undertaken in connection with the settlement of an enforcement action taken by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to enforce federal laws. This change, along with the recent improvements in our water storage tanks, will allow the City to maintain consistent water quality standards while enhancing the safety of operations.
A copy of the most recent Water Quality Report in accordance with the Safe Drinking Water Act is available by clicking here or by contacting Kathy Twitchell at 816-630-0755, Ext. 222.
