Water Tower Improvements
In April 2013, the citizens of Belton approved revenue bonds to construct improvements to the drinking water and wastewater systems, including a new water tower, which is now located in Markey Park and is the largest water tower by volume in the State of Missouri.
The new water tower benefits include:
• Increased ability to meet demands of the community in the near-and the long-term, allowing the City to grow responsibly
• Improved safety of the community in regard to fire suppression.
The City was successful in securing low interest loans from the State of Missouri to fund the $5.6 million water tower and associated water line upgrade project, saving millions of dollars in interest expenses over the next 20 years.
