Kansas City, MO Water Quality: Then & Now
The Kansas City metropolitan area has a history forever entwined with the region’s water. The city lies at the confluence of the Kansas and Missouri Rivers and straddles the 2 states’ lines. The city was established in Missouri in 1838 and in Kansas in 1872. Strategically located, the region offers key opportunities for trade and commerce.
Early residents drew water exclusively from wells and cisterns, but waterborne illness and the need for fire protection encouraged Kansas City officials to establish a formal system. The area’s first waterworks was built in 1874 and originally provided thirsty residents with 5 million gallons of water per day from the Kaw River. As the city’s population swelled throughout the 20th century, water managers turned to the most natural source: the historic Missouri River.
Today, Kansas City Water delivers water through more than 2,800 miles of pipeline, serving more than 170,000 customers. In 2019, KC Water produced an average of 90 million gallons of drinking water per day, enough water to fill 136 Olympic-sized swimming pools. According to the 2020 Kansas City Water Quality assessment, Kansas City tap water meets regulations, however, it may contain microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
Although KC Water continues to monitor for lead and copper, old pipes and fixtures may leach into water. Seasonal changes in temperature and precipitation upstream can also affect the Kansas City water quality. As the river becomes very muddy due to silt and organic matter that gets carried downstream, consumers may notice an earthy or musty odor or taste, as well as a green tint.
