KC Water Cancels Treatment Technic Alert

Posted on March 29, 2019

(Kansas City, Mo.) Turbidity levels are now within the standards set by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and KC Water has lifted the treatment technic alert that was driven by higher turbidity levels. Improving river conditions have allowed our treatment process to resume near normal conditions and the alert that was issued to the immunocompromised, elderly and infants is no longer in effect.

“We understand the concern this last week has caused our customers. Safe, clean, and good-tasting tap water is critical for a strong, healthy, and vibrant growing community,” said Terry Leeds, KC Water Director.  “We take water quality very seriously and will continue to test Kansas City’s tap water to ensure it is safe to drink at all times.”

While turbidity levels are back down, customers may continue to notice seasonal taste, odor or color issues with their tap water.

KC Water maintains and operates water treatment and distribution systems, stormwater management systems, and wastewater collection and treatment systems for residential and business customers in Kansas City and for wholesale customers in the Kansas City area.  KC Water is primarily funded by fees charged to customers based on their use or impacts on the three utility systems.
