Project Summary:

This project began in May 2013. This is a rural water system located in the Northwest corner of Missouri and is the largest rural water district, in terms of miles of pipe, in the State of Missouri. The District is supplied by the City Maryville Water Treatment Plant, also a PeopleService client. The system consists of approximately 1200 miles of water main, 2400 service connections (including the municipalities of Clearmont and Skidmore), five elevated storage towers ranging in size from 110,000-135,000 gallons, three clearwells, and various pump stations. The water is distributed through purchase agreements. PeopleService was hired due to cost overruns with the budget and personnel issues. These issues have been resolved allowing the District to focus on growth. PeopleService is currently facilitating this growth by focusing on the items of budget, staff, and inventory management.
