News from City of Archie: Water Tower Repair

The City of Archie’s water tower is experiencing a leak.  To repair the leak, the tower will need to be drained.  The City will have a system in place to continue to provide water to our citizens, with little, or no, interruption.  The pressure may be less than normal, but still be sufficient.  We are hoping that the repair will not take more than a week.  The tower draining and repair will begin on Tuesday, March 2, 2021.  We will post any additional updates or information on our City’s Facebook page, “Archie, MO”, and here on the website.  Thank you for your patience as we strive to continue providing water service to you.
