Public Works

Public Works Department

The Department of Public Works maintains all City buildings, parks, properties, vehicles, roadways, right of ways, and City owned utilities and infrastructures. The city-owned utilities and infrastructures include storm water, sanitary sewers, and the water distribution systems.

Troy Public Works is a fifteen member department that strives to address all citizen concerns and questions. We are devoted to providing a wide range of municipal services in a professional and organized manner. We work closely with the other city departments, as well as the Lincoln County Highway Department and the Missouri Department of Transportation, to provide a safe, trouble-free environment for the community to live within.

The City of Troy is a member of the Missouri One Call System and will locate underground city utilities upon request. To schedule utility marking, please contact Missouri One Call at 1-800-344-7483 at least forty-eight hours prior to your dig date. The City participates for the safety of our utilities and our citizens. So we urge you to be safe and use the no cost service.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding any of our services or preventative maintenance programs, please contact our office at 636-528-4646 or the Troy City Hall at 636-528-4712.

The City of Troy’s wastewater system serves a population of approximately 10,500. The city currently has two treatment plants. One is an aeration plant and the other in a newly built Membrane Bio-Reactor plant. This high-tech facility features extensive screening and membrane filtration to produce an effluent of exceptional quality.


The City of Troy tries to supply the highest quality water and meet the city’s needs in the most cost effective way for its customers. We strive to meet and exceed all state and federal standards.

The city’s water comes from six deep wells averaging a depth of 1400 feet. Two of the six wells are monitoring wells. Over the years the City of Troy has drilled a total of twelve wells, some which have been abandoned and sealed. The water system’s main producing wells are #9, #11 and #10. Wells #12, #6 and #8 are mainly used during peak demands and emergencies. We have three elevated storage tanks with a capacity of two millions gallons. The water pressure usually ranges from 45 to 90 psi.

Every few years the city will also work with the fire department to measure fire flows on the city’s fire hydrants to gather information that helps maintain our current ISO low rating. This low rating is important in keeping your homeowners insurance rates low.


The City of Troy Animal Control Department operates a dog pound through the Public Works Department. Animal Control responds to reports of stray dogs or dogs running at large. Dogs that are brought into the State of Missouri licensed pound are held for no less than 7 days. Owners of impounded dogs are permitted to retrieve their dogs from the pound. It is the objective of the Animal Control Dept. to safely and efficiently recover and return stray animals to the rightful owner through a variety of means such as social media and diligent search when ownership cannot be determined.
