Our water surpasses all federal and state water quality standards!
A recent reliability study indicated that additional water production capability was necessary for the Water Utility. Production capabilities were enhanced in September 2014 as two new wells were placed into service. The Board of Trustees also approved a project for the procurement of land to develop a new well field.
System reliability was further enhanced in 2014 through other major investments in our water infrastructure. The Water Utility completed several water main replacement projects that will improve water system reliability in areas where main breaks have occurred in the past.
- We serve over 9,500 households and businesses and pump an average of 10.0 billion gallons of water per year.
- Muscatine residents and businesses use, on average, 28.5 million gallons of water per day.
- Our 26 wells can produce 40 million gallons of water per day.
- We currently have 156 miles of water main...enough to go from Muscatine to Des Moines!
