Municipal Utilities

The City of Hermann owns and operates its own electrical distribution, water/sewer and natural gas systems. Utility offices are located at City Hall, 1902 Jefferson Street.

City water is supplied by four deep wells. Other than chlorine injection there is no treatment of the water, which is regularly tested in accordance with the Clean Drinking Water Act.

Sanitary waste is processed through a .35 MCD aerated lagoon disposal system with two processing cells and one polishing cell. A .46 MCD aerated lagoon is used primarily by the Industrial Park.

Trash collection is handled by a private contractor. For information regarding rates, collection times, and recycling programs, call the city office, 573-486-5400.
