We take pride in providing the City of Paris with an adequate, safe, reliable, and cost efficient potable drinking water supply. The City of Paris is responsible for the development, administration, and operation of the public drinking water supply. The City of Paris purchases their potable drinking water from the Clarence Cannon Wholesale Water Commission (CCWWC). The CCWWC obtains raw water from Mark Twain Lake and processes the water at a water treatment plant located near Stoutsville, Missouri. The CCWWC which supplies drinking water for numerous communities and rural areas throughout Northeast Missouri is required to be in compliance with current public drinking water standards set forth by the Environmental Protection Agency and the regulatory standards of the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. To monitor the efficiency of the water, CCWWC provides the City of Paris with monthly water quality reports and the Superintendent of the City of Paris serves as an alternate on the Board of Directors of the CCWWC. The City of Paris contracts an ample supply of water from CCWWC to meet and exceed the demands.
