The City of Mountain Grove Water Department works every day to insure that all water customers have the best quality of water we can provide. Our water supply is totally from wells and meets all State and Federal Standards. Please see our latest Consumer Confidence Report below.
We are currently doing a rate study and putting together a capital improvement plan, something the Water Department has never done! With our aging infrastructure we must insure the generations to come have the quality and quantity of water available for sustainability and growth of the community. This will be completed by mid 2018.
