At KC Water, we are good stewards in our community, protecting the environment and providing programs and services that support the public good.
Since the Missouri River is primary source of water for Kansas Citians, we take very seriously our obligation to protect the watersheds, tributaries, and the river itself through our wastewater treatment plants and our stormwater management infrastructure and these additional programs:
- A Household Hazardous Waste Facility that accepts and properly recycles or disposes of flammables, fertilizes, chemicals, paints, and other dangerous materials that can spoil waterways
- Curbside Leaf and Brush Collection, which minimizes organic waste that enters streams and rivers and helps improve neighborhoods
- Smart Sewer, a $5 billion, 25-year initiative to reduce overflows from combined sewer systems and prevent overflows from separate sewer systems
- A comprehensive Street Sweeping program to minimize trash and debris out of area streams and rivers
Customers are encouraged to join KC Water in taking advantage of these programs to protect Kansas City today and for future generations. Use links on this page to learn more.
