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

Stocks in this article: AWK

"Reliable, quality water is essential in almost everything we do--It’s not only for drinking, cooking and cleaning; it’s for fire protection, manufacturing, business and industry and overall economic vitality,” added Moore. “When we invest in upgrading our water systems, we improve quality and reliability for our customers and enhance fire protection in our service communities. In the U.S., water services are often so reliable that most people do not think twice about what comes out of their faucets or what it’s been through to become safe enough to drink. There’s an obvious cost to assure water quality and reliability, but most people never think about it unless, for some reason, they have to go without water service.”

In August, Iowa American Water launched a customer education program to help consumers better understand everything that goes into providing them all with high quality water and reliable water service and highlight the important role they play by simply paying their water bills, which, in turn, helps support system improvements to ensure the continued reliability. More information can be found on the company’s website at www.iowaamwater.com and on its Facebook page.

“By supporting needed water system improvements, customers and Iowa American Water are working together to keep the water flowing now and well into the future – all for about a penny a gallon,” noted Moore.

Iowa American Water maintains approximately 153 miles of water main in its Clinton District and another 675 miles in the Iowa Quad Cities. This year in Clinton, Iowa American Water invested about $1.8 million in water main upgrade projects.
