The Iowa City Water Treatment Plant opened in February 2003. The $49 million project took four years to complete, with groundbreaking for the new water wells taking place in 1999 and for the facility in 2000. The facility replaced the former treatment plant on Madison Street, which had been in service since 1882!
Today, the water treatment plant produces 6 million gallons of drinking water daily or about 2 billion gallons of purified water annually. Thirty people staff the facility, tanks, wells, 29,000 water meters, 280 miles of a public water main, and thousands of hydrants and valves.
The Iowa City community pays less than 1 cent per gallon for this intensely regulated, 24/7 service.
National Public Works Week is an annual recognition of the important impact public works have on the daily lives of people across the country. This year’s National Public Works Week is May 21-27. The theme is “Connecting the World.”
