Missoula Public Works: Replacing aging infrastructure saved 930K gallons of water
The city of Missoula saved more than 930,000 gallons of water per day in 2019 by replacing leaking pipes and making other system upgrades, as promised during the Mountain Water acquisition, according to a report by Missoula Water.
