On August 4, 2020 Eureka voters authorized the City to sell its Water and Sanitary Sewer system to Missouri American Water for $28 Million. The vote passed with 67% approval. The City entered into a contract with Missouri American Water to sell the systems on November 17th, 2020. On April 26, 2021 Missouri American Water filed an application with the Missouri Public Service Commission requesting approval of the sale. The City and Missouri American are still working through the approval process and presently anticipate receiving a final decision in January, 2022. Once the sale is approved, the City anticipates that the sale will close within sixty (60) days, at which time Missouri American Water will take over responsibility for running the systems. They have already commenced engineering and easement acquisition work to bring a new water trunk line (new water supply) to Eureka.
