…the Brunswick Revitalization Committee was awarded a $50,000 grant by the American Water Charitable Foundation to complete the courtyard project in downtown Brunswick? This was in addition to a previous $5,000 grant that was awarded to the Brunswick Revitalization Committee for the landscaping project. It looks beautiful!

In addition, the Brunswick Fire Department has been awarded grants from the American Water Charitable Foundation for equipment for the last several years.

Missouri American Water, Brunswick also gave the Brunswick
Fire Department two self-contained breathing apparatuses (SCBA).

Thank you Missouri American Water for all you do to make our community a wonderful place to live, work, and raise our families.
