Earlier this year, the Cassville City Council approved a $540,000 maintenance agreement with Utility Services, of Georgia, for the repair of several water tower maintenance issues. The agreement will allow the city to spread the costs of several repairs and improvements over a 10-year period. Over the last few weeks, Utility Services has started improvements at Cassville's water towers. On Sept. 14, crews power washed the tower located off of Business 37 near the Barry County E-911 Operations Center. City officials reported that the maintenance on the tower would be completed by Friday, Sept. 23. This week, residents in the area may experience minor water pressure fluctuations. "Utility Services is one of the largest, best known companies of its kind in the country," said Eugene Dilbeck, city administrator. "They will continually maintain the minimum water pressure required by Missouri's Department of Natural Resources (DNR). We regret any inconvenience to area residents. This procedure is vital and important to assure Cassville's water quality meets DNR's state standard."
