Welcome to the Davenport Recycled Water Project!


The Davenport Recycled Water Project (DRWP) is a project to upgrade the existing wastewater treatment plant in Davenport. This project will upgrade the Davenport County Sanitation District’s wastewater treatment plant by dredging accumulated solids in the treatment lagoon, installing alarms for the filtration and disinfection processes, and adding redundancy for coagulant and hypochlorite dosing. The project also consists of the construction of a storage pond for treated water, which will allow adjacent farmers to use recycled water for irrigation.
