About Macon Municipal Utilities

Since 1890

Macon Municipal Utilities (MMU) provides customers with electric, water, wastewater, and natural gas services. These services have been phased in since its establishment in 1890.

MMU is a founding member of the Missouri Public Energy Pool (MoPEP) and along with 34 additional cities receives electricity from the Pool’s resource portfolio. Resources including clean coal, natural gas, wind, solar, hydro, and landfill gas. Macon’s water supply is Long Branch Lake which MMU had a part in its development in the 1970’s. Sixty percent of the water from the treatment plant is sold to customers outside the city limits and the remaining is utilized by residential, commercial, and industrial customers within the city limits.

The wastewater treatment plant treats just under an average 1 million gallons per day. Macon is one of the six Combined Sewer Systems in the State of Missouri and faces regulatory compliance upgrades in the near future. Natural gas is delivered by Panhandle Eastern Pipeline and the purchases are made through through Kinect Energy. MMU is governed by a four member Board of Public Works which is appointed by the City Council upon recommendation from the Mayor.
