Road Construction Update

Construction at the Highway 67 and 7th Avenue roundabout project is beginning pavement this week. This pavement process is 2-3 weeks. The next step is the lighting improvements to be performed by Mid American Energy. This intersection will be well lit. However, the lighting will aim downard in order to prevent the bleeding of light to neighboring properties or into the sky. As that work is being done, the constractor will begin seeding. In all, we are hoping for substantial completion by the end of the month. The final step will be getting approval from the Iowa DOT for acceptance of the improvement. If all goes well, we will be open around the end of the month. 

Discolored Water and Mobile311

Here's how Mobile311 is working for us. These are all notations of discolored water. We have added discolored water as a specific citizen request. If you register with Mobile311 through the City's website, you can help populate this report. You can also upload a picture via your individual report. This file becomes a permanent record. Once opened, the work order is generated and sends an email to the public works director, the water system employee and the city administrator. You are then able to follow any updates or notes that are placed on your individual report.
We continue to monitor the issue and are working to address the source of the problem. Currently, our back up wells turn on (manually by staff) and that water co-mingles with the main well water. This manual operation is creating more of a problem. However, the operation needs to happen. We are fielding bids to replace our outdated SCATA system which controls the automatic operation. The funding of this equipment replacement is not an issue. It is the availability of the equipment and the availability of the contractors to perform the work.
The water department has increased the level of poly-phosphates in the system to try and address some hardness and iron issues in the system. We have been at 5mgl and have adjusted to 8mgl to try and calm down the system which are acceptable levels.
