COLUMBIA, Mo.—Public Water Supply District No. 1 of Franklin County, Mo., has renewed its professional operations agreement for the district\'s water and sewer utilities with Columbia-based Alliance Water Resources. The 10-year contract renewal became effective Jan. 1, 2011.

The new agreement includes the implementation this summer of monthly water-meter reading and computerized billing to provide better service for PWSD No. 1 customers. When conversion plans are complete, customers will be formally notified. Once the conversion is complete, customers will no longer be inconvenienced by having to read their own water meter each month, and the district will be able to ensure timely billing cycles for its customers.
