Water Department

The City of Paris takes pride in providing our citizens with an adequate, safe, reliable, and cost efficient potable drinking water supply. We are responsible for the development, administration, and operation of the public drinking water supply.

The City purchases their potable drinking water from the Clarence Cannon Wholesale Water Commission (CCWWC). The CCWWC obtains raw water from Mark Twain Lake and processes it at a treatment plant located near Stoutsville, Missouri. 

CCWWC supplies drinking water for numerous communities and rural areas throughout Northeast Missouri. Subsequently, the CCWWC 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 with monthly water quality reports. The Superintendent of the City of Paris serves as an alternate on the Board of Directors of the CCWWC. The City contracts an ample supply of water from CCWWC to meet and exceed the demands.
