Dredging of the wastewater treatment lagoon was completed in mid-December. Upgrades to the recycled water treatment plant are nearly complete. Construction of the waterline along Cement Plant Road (extending from the treatment plant to the storage pond on the farmland property) will begin soon. In preparation, construction crews will be potholing the road in the next couple of weeks. Traffic will be diverted around the construction crews as needed during this time. Over the next two months as the waterline is constructed, detours will route traffic around the closed portion of Cement Plant Road via Highway 1 and via Adeline Street. The detour will be in place from around 8:00 am to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
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.
