The construction of the recycled water force main in Cement Plant road is progressing. Construction crews uncovered multiple unexpected underground utilities and obstacles during construction of the force main, causing delays. We appreciate your continued patience during this period of traffic detours.
This week construction crews will be beginning the jack and bore operation under the railroad tracks and Highway 1. This work will provide the farmer on the ocean-side of Highway 1 with the ability to irrigate the farmland with recycled water from the treatment plant in the future.
Also beginning this week is grading work for the recycle water storage pond located on the property along Warnella Road. The recycled water in the storage pond will be used by the property owner for irrigation and will be available for the general public to purchase at the recycled water fill station. Purchasers of the recycled water must pre-register with the Davenport County Sanitation District and agree to only use the recycled water for approved uses.
