CENTENNIAL (S&P Global Ratings) June 13, 2018--S&P Global Ratings raised its long-term rating to 'AA+' from 'AA' on St. Charles County Public Water Supply District No. 2, Mo.'s outstanding certificates of participation (COPs). At the same time, S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'AA+' long-term rating to the district's series 2018 COPs. The outlook is stable.

"The rating reflects our view of an extremely strong enterprise risk profile and a very strong financial risk profile," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst John Schulz.

The series 2018 certificates will fund the purchase of the water distribution and sewer collection systems from the city of Wright City, Mo., and fund other system capital improvements to the district's waterworks and sewerage systems.
