Missouri American Water celebrates pipe replacement project
JOPLIN, Mo. — Missouri American Water is celebrating the completion of a water pipe replacement project in north Joplin.
The multi-phase project began in 2019.
About 4.5 miles of two-inch water pipe was replaced with eight-inch pipe.
Officials say the upgrade will supply about 9.5 times more water to the area, improving both water system reliability and fire protection.
