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.
