at 100 Water Drive in O'Fallon, Missouri, Water District 2 has
grown from a small, rural water district at its inception to the
largest water district in the State of Missouri serving a population
of about 75,000 people. Some of that growth is attributable to
acquisitions of other utilities, but most of it comes from the
addition of customers coming directly into our service area, now
encompassing over 400 square miles. The service area includes
the communities of Lake St. Louis, Defiance, New Melle, Augusta,
Dardenne Prairie, Dutzow and parts of O'Fallon, Weldon Spring,
Innsbrook and unincorporated St. Charles and Warren Counties.

The Water District's
water distribution system has a capacity of over 30 million gallons
per day. Because of the tremendous growth of the District's service
area, the Water District's Board of Directors commissioned a growth
study and Water System Master Plan in 2002. The study, completed
by Jacobs Engineering, provides a roadmap for our water distribution
system's growth through 2018. Based upon the results of the study,
we estimate that the demands of the District's water customers will
almost double during the 15-year planning period. The Water District
is planning numerous capital improvements to help assure the adequate
storage and supply of water to its customers.
Recent and ongoing
construction projects for the Water District include new water towers
within new developments north of Foristell and Wright City, the
new Water District Service Building at 100 Water Drive, and new
larger water lines throughout the service area. Other pipelines,
pump stations and wastewater facilities are also being planned.
These projects are aimed at continuing our reliable, high quality
service to our customers.
