Ozark Conducts Regular Maintenance on Water Towers to Ensure Clean and Safe Drinking Water

Ozark, Mo. -- If you drove around Ozark in the last few days and noticed water flowing out of the city's water towers, you might wonder what's happening—no need to worry. Crews are doing regularly scheduled maintenance on the city's elevated storage tanks. These water towers hold the water you use daily, so we want them to be clean.

The Department of Natural Resources requires the City to clean and inspect its elevated water storage tanks every three (3) to five (5) years. To stay proactive in the mandated timeframe, Public Works completes this maintenance process every three (3) years. This keeps the city's towers looking great inside and out to help provide clean and safe drinking water to city customers.

Over the last week, crews completed maintenance on all six towers. That process includes draining the water, contractor crews cleaning the towers, washing the outside, and filling the storage tanks back up. The next time the city will complete this maintenance will be in 2026. 

The City of Ozark's water storage facilities consist of six (6) elevated storage tanks with a combined total of 3,600,000 gallons of storage.
