Missouri American Water Announces Recipients of Annual Hydration Station Grant Program

ST. LOUIS, May 30, 2023--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Seventeen schools, cities and nonprofit organizations across the state will now have improved access to quality drinking water due to funding from the annual Missouri American Water Hydration Station Grant Program. Launched last year, the program awards water bottle filling stations and drinking fountains for indoor and outdoor use.

The program also promotes environmental stewardship by encouraging reusable bottle use to reduce single-use plastic bottles. According to the Container Recycling Institute, roughly 60 million plastic bottles are thrown away every day. While most end up in landfills, millions still litter streets, parks and waterways.

"As stewards of both the environment and the communities we serve, Missouri American Water is proud to offer an annual grant program that benefits our customers and local waterways." said Rich Svindland, president of Missouri American Water.

Recipients of indoor Hydration Stations for 2023 are:

The annual grant program will be accepting applications again in spring 2024. Applicants who did not receive grants this year and who qualify are encouraged to reapply. To be eligible, entities must receive their tap water from Missouri American Water. One unit will be considered per organization, per program year.
