About Water Utilities

Lee’s Summit Water Utilities has provided the City of Lee’s Summit with water, sanitary sewer, and fire protection services for more than 100 years, ensuring the health, safety and future growth of our community.

What began as a water system of fewer than five miles of infrastructure in 1916, now boasts 639 miles of water main and 480 miles of sanitary sewer lines to serve more than 38,900 customer accounts throughout the service area. The service area for Lee's Summit Water Utilities encompasses nearly all of the area within the corporate city limits and includes some areas outside of the city limits. The total service area is over 70 square miles and serves over 34,000 homes and businesses.

With the capacity to supply 32.5 million gallons a day (MGD) from two different suppliers – Kansas City and Independence – and emergency connections from Tri-County Water Authority, the department is in the position to meet the anticipated water needs of our community for the next several decades. 

Lee’s Summit Water Utilities conveys wastewater to the Little Blue Valley Sewer District for treatment through the sanitary sewer system. The utility focuses on sanitary sewer inflow and infiltration (I&) reduction programs to maximize the capacity and efficiency of the sewer system through strategic rehabilitation, renewal and maintenance efforts.
