Missouri American Water began $1.45 million worth of water main projects in Jefferson City earlier this week.

The water company will work on five water main projects over the next two months that include replacements, relocations and installations, according to a Wednesday news release.

Missouri American Water will be working on projects on Airport Road, Oil Well Road, East Atchison Street, Harding Street, Cordell Street, Dockery Street, Madeline Street, Industrial Street and West Fillmore Street.

"Some of these water mains we're replacing date from before World War II," operation manager Brent Haas said in the news release. "They have all exceeded their useful life, and so to ensure we can continue uninterrupted service of clean, safe, award-winning water, we have to replace this aging infrastructure. We ask for patience from customers and from the people of Jefferson City as we undertake these projects."

Customers may experience temporary water service interruptions, discolored water and lower-than-normal water pressure during construction, the news release said.

Missouri American Water will work on these projects 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Friday, but crews will also work a few evening hours on certain projects.

The projects will be finished by the end of December, weather pending, with restoration of disturbed land being complete in spring 2019.
