Missouri Water Quality Facts
Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems
The drinking water in Missouri comes from various groundwater sources across the state. However, the groundwater supply in Missouri is not evenly distributed â€” the amount of usable groundwater is far less in northern Missouri than it is in the southern part of the state. In fact, only 12% of the water found north of the Missouri River is clean enough to be used as drinking water.
The state's water supply is regulated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ensure it is safe to drink. While the water won't harm you, Missouri's water is hard, which is often responsible for the buildup of soap scum and limescale, as well as spotty, streaky dishes, glasses, and silverware.
Different parts of Missouri can experience distinct water challenges. Even within the same city, water issues can vary. Learn more about the water where you live:
