Missouri American Water Invests $4.3 Million to Replace Aging Pipes in Florissant and Hazelwood

Mayor Tim Lowery along with officials from Hazelwood and MO American Water met on Thursday, January 20th to discuss the $4.3 million main replacement project that will be starting this month. Nearly 6,000 feet along N. Lindbergh Boulevard between Elm Grove Avenue to Charbonier Road in Hazelwood and Florissant will be improved. Missouri American Water is working in conjunction with MoDOT. Work will occur from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. from Monday to Saturday to reduce traffic impact. The purpose of the project is to provide upgrades and improvements to the area’s aging water system. The entire project is projected to be completed between 4 to 8 months.

Mayor Lowery adds, “Missouri American Water Company is committed in continuing to invest dollars in Florissant and in North St. Louis County. We have always had and continue to have a great working relationship with Missouri American Water and I appreciate their continuous commitment to our community.

Motorists should use caution when driving in the construction areas and obey traffic signs, detour routes, and flaggers. Missouri American Water continues to conduct its work in coordination and compliance with all federal, state, and local agencies and directives. As construction begins, Missouri American Water asks customers to continue following social distancing recommendations issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention by keeping at least 6 feet (2 meters) between our employees and customers.

Missouri American Water will provide continuous updates as work occurs. Customers may receive updates via door hangers and/or the company’s notification system that contacts customers via phone, text or email based on customer preferences.
