SPECIAL UPDATE: WYSS PUMP STATION GOES INTO SERVICEFebruary 23rd, 2016 - We are pleased to announce that over the next few weeks we are bringing our new pump station at Hedge Lane into service. As you may recall from the informational letter and brochure we sent several months ago, this new facility serves your area and ensures pressure and reliability for the future. As we bring it online, our goal is to do so without disruption to our customers but it is possible you might experience temporary flux in pressure or brief service outage. It is also possible that the water may temporarily appear cloudy. If so, we want to assure you that the water continues to be perfectly safe; this temporary affect will subside. We will do everything we can to prevent or minimize such inconveniences and will provide follow-up communication, if necessary. If you should have concerns or questions please call WaterOne Customer Care at 913/895-1800.
If you do not already have a pressure reducing valve (also known as a PRV) installed on your internal plumbing system, we encourage you to consider whether a PRV would be beneficial to equalize incoming water pressure to your home plumbing. More information on PRVs can be found at waterone.org/PRV. We're proud to be your water provider and appreciate the opportunity to serve you.

Project DescriptionAs our service area continues to grow, we plan proactively to meet customer needs. Southern Johnson County continues to be a robust area for growth, and with its distance from our water supply (~20 miles) it is necessary to install the extra muscle and storage capacity that a localized pump station and reservoir provides.
