Water & Sewer

Having good and reliable infrastructure is crucial for cities in order to meet the needs of its citizens and businesses connected to the combined system. Currently, Sarcoxie is able to provide water at a steady pressure and rate to every home and business within city limits, but there is an opportunity to improve this availability through the use of loops and increased water main diameter. Sewer is also available to households but with more housing coming to Sarcoxie, expansions are necessary.

For a quick overview of the current infrastructure, check out our water and sewer sections.
