(Kansas City, MO) – KC Water Services has located the cause of the water distribution issue that created lower than normal water pressure for customers located in South Kansas City (south of 75th Street). The cause was a break on a 16” water main located east of the intersection of Troost Avenue and Bannister Road. Crews are on site and normal water pressure has been restored to customers. While it is too early to determine whether a boil water advisory will be necessary, for customers that experienced lower than normal water pressure, it is encouraged that water pipes are flushed by letting the water run from the tap for a few minutes. We thank our customers for their patience as we worked to restore water service.
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.
