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.

August Update

The Davenport Recycled Water Project is nearing completion.  Since the last post, the following work has been performed:
  1. The recycled water storage pond has been excavated and lined.
  2. The recycled water line has been installed under Highway 1 and is a possible future source for irrigation for the farming on the State Parks Property.
  3. The recycled water line has been installed in Cement Plant Road between the treatment plant and the storage pond. 
  4. Work has progressed at the truck fill station where the public will be able to purchase recycled water for approved uses.
The landscaping around the pond will be installed in the next couple of weeks.  Contractors will continue their work installing instrumentation for the treatment plant.  The project is scheduled to be completed in mid to late September.
