JEFFERSON CITY---The Missouri Public Service Commission has approved a joint application filed by the Meramec Sewer Company (Meramec) and Missouri-American Water Company (Missouri-American) which authorizes Missouri-American to purchase substantially all of Meramec’s sewer assets.
In a filing with the Commission on January 28, 2013, the Staff of the Public Service Commission recommended the application be approved.
“The Commission may approve of a sale of a sewer company if that sale is not detrimental to the public interest,” the Commission said. “Based on the verified pleadings, the Commission finds that granting the application for the sale of the sewer company would not be detrimental to the public interest.”
