Iowa American Water Completes About $2 Million In Water Main Upgrade Projects In The Iowa Quad Cities

Stocks in this article: AWK

Iowa American Water announced today that almost $2 million in water main upgrades have been completed in the Iowa Quad Cities this year, and the largest single project, an almost $1 million valve replacement and main project on River Drive in Davenport is near completion.

The River Drive improvement project included replacement or rehabilitation of 20 valves and abandonment of some water main that was no longer necessary due to other transmission line upgrades in the area over the years. The valve upgrade work assures that valves along River Drive are fully operable which allows water company crews the ability to better isolate water main breaks when they occur and lessen the inconvenience to customers.

“This project improves reliability for our customers by replacing aging valves that have been the cause of significant breaks in the past,” said Randy Moore, President. “We scheduled the work to coincide with the city of Davenport’s East River Drive Resurfacing Project which was beneficial not only to our customers but to the company and city as well. As stewards of our region’s water system, we work hard to treat and deliver high-quality water to our customers, and to make ongoing system improvements to ensure continued reliable service now and in the future. When we are able to partner with the communities we serve to do that work at less cost and less inconvenience to our customers and city residents, it is a win-win situation for us all.”

Earlier this year, water main replacement projects totaling an additional $1.1 million were completed on Oak and Tenplus Streets, Tanglefoot Lane, Pleasant Ridge Drive and 25 th Street in Bettendorf; North Pine and North Harrison Streets, Jersey Ridge Road at Duck Creek and 53 rd Street east of Elmore Avenue in Davenport; Davenport Avenue in LeClaire and Manor and Circle Drives in Riverdale. About 7,300 feet of water main was replaced and upgraded as part of those projects.

Pipeline replacement projects are selected on their community benefits, including the company’s ability to partner with service communities to make upgrades during planned projects, reducing water main breaks and improving the overall integrity of the water system in the area.
